The Women in IT conference (WiIT) will be held at the Cintas Center on Friday, November 17, 2017 - 8:30am to 2:00pm.  The WiIT Conference is a one-day annual event designed for high school women to ask questions about the information technology field and encourage women to consider majors and careers in IT. 

During the event, 60 corporate volunteers mentor the students, providing small-group coaching opportunities and a hands-on problem-solving challenge.  In support of this year’s theme of data analytics, the high school women participate in demonstrations that provide visibility into the data analytics role across various, local industries.  The high school women also interact with several university students in IT via a panel discussion. 

Students interesting in attending the event should come to the guidance office to register by 3:00 pm on Friday, November 11th. Students must provide their own transportation to the event, but a Lakota West Counselor will be in attendance.
