Northwest Regional Women in Computing 2014: Women Pioneering Innovation

DoubleTree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Portland - Lloyd Center
1000 Ne Multnomah St
Portland, OR 97232, US (map)



The Northwest Regional Women in Computing (NWrWIC) Celebration focuses on empowering and encouraging women to enter the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, particularly computer science. The conference brings together students from universities and high schools, with industry leaders from the private and public sectors to engage and inspire the next generation of leaders to play an active role in shaping the future of computing and technology.

The 2014 conference is the third annual event. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue and build successful careers in computing and technology by improving their educational experience and engagement with industry leaders. With less than 30% of STEM jobs filled by women, the industry is lacking full representation of the world’s views. This lack of diversity inhibits industry’s innovation potential. Our effort recognizes and empowers women who are part of the computing industry and celebrates all who are supporters of them.

If you are the following, then you would want to come:

  • College professionals
  • industry leaders
  • Job seekers
  • STEM/Technology leaders
  • Thought leaders
  • Professors
  • Teachers
  • High School STEM students (must be accompanied by guardian)
