Aspirations in Computing is a talent development pipeline initiative of the National Center for Women & IT (NCWIT) designed to increase meaningful participation of women in computing careers by providing encouragement, visibility, community, leadership opportunities, scholarships, and internships. The award honors high school women who are active and interested in computing and technology, and encourages them to pursue their passions (NCWIT, 2016).
The 2019 awards event was held in conjunction with the Mississippi State University New Narrative Festival. Two of our Aspirations winners, Annalisa Robertson and Bertha Mirales, participated on a young leaders panel for the Festival immediately following the Aspirations award ceremony.
Congratulations to our 2019 awardees!
