Women in Technology to host DIGITAL Event Feb. 27, 2021


When: February 27th at 1:00 PM
Who: High School Girls
Where: This event will be held on Zoom
Registration is FREE!

JMU's Women in Technology (WIT) club is hosting its annual DIGITAL event on February 27th at 1pm. DIGITAL stands for Dukes Inspiring Girls Into Technology Across Limits, and historically the club invites girls from the Harrisonburg school system to come to JMU to learn about technology. However, this year the event will be online so all high school girls are invited to attend! 

WIT is thrilled to announce that Dr. Nicki Washington, Professor of the Practice at Duke University, will be the speaker for this year’s event. Dr. Washington is the author of Unapologetically Dope, and she will be sharing her advice on surviving and thriving in technical fields. Her talk will run 30 minutes and then attendees will have the opportunity to join small breakout discussions. The WIT team is excited to facilitate conversations with young women interested in technology and our university students and alumni working in tech fields.

The first 70 registrants will receive a free copy of Dr. Washington's book, Unapologetically Dope, a short hands-on activity, JMU swag, and a treat!
