Women in IT at Yale

Women in Information Technology at Yale (WIT@Yale)

While there are over 200 women in IT roles throughout the University, women make up only a small portion of the overall IT workforce. WIT@Yale is a shared interest group whose goal is to encourage, empower, and support women in information technology roles by providing a networking community. WIT@Yale is sponsered by two co-executive sponsors: Susan Gibbons, Deputy Provost and University Librarian; and Jane Livingston, Yale ITS Associate CIO.

Although the shared interest group is targeted for women, all members of the Yale community are welcome to participate.


WIT@Yale seeks to empower and support a community of women in information technology.
