Week with Women is a weeklong extravaganza hosted by WiCS to bring all UT Computer Science students together and have some fun while supporting women in CS.
Women in Computer Science
It’s no secret that women in tech are far more rare than they should be. At UT Computer Science, however, First Bytes is working to change this by reaching out to girls at a time when their career paths are still somewhat undecided. Established eleven years ago, First Bytes is a one-week camp for high school girls designed to ignite enthusiasm for computer science and dispel myths about the field that keep women from participating.
UTCS’s student group Women in Computer Science (WiCS) has renamed their "iPals" mentoring program to the Nell Dale Mentor Program.
Women in Natural Sciences presented the 2005 Everybody WINS Award to the Department of Computer Sciences, in recognition and appreciation of the department’s commitment to best practices in the recruitment and/or retention of women and underrepresented minorities.
