Women in IT

Women in IT

Women are underrepresented in the high-demand field of information technology, even though many women are interested in this career. That’s why ACC developed the Women in IT (WIT) program with your success in mind. Our goal is to help women achieve success in both short-term and long-term goals despite unique challenges they may encounter. Every student has a dedicated student support specialist who can direct you to college resources, support services. This specialist also acts as your academic coach.
