Our Mission

Women in Computing (WiC) is a student-run organization at California State University, Long Beach that is building a community to uplift and facilitate the ongoing growth of the next generation of women* in technology. Our mission is to cultivate leadership, hone confidence, and provide practical experience. Together, we reinforce a sisterhood where meaningful dialogue is established, unexpected connections are created, and momentum is inspired for future leaders.

Programs

Sisterhood

Sisterhood is the foundation of our organization. The Sisterhood program is designed for WiC members to form companionship and to encourage members to be active. Our Sisterhood provides mentorship through social and professional development events throughout the semester. These events ensure that our members maintain an optimal balance of academic and social life, all while fostering lasting friendships and supportive bonds.

Workshops

Our workshop series are aimed towards providing technical skills and hands-on experience with topics outside of the school curriculum, such as command line mastery, source control collaboration, resume review, and in-demand technologies.

Professional Development

Students have opportunities to experience the day-to-day of working engineers and the work culture of their company. This provides a better understanding of their values in a more personal setting. Office Space tours complements classroom education by giving first-hand exposure to companies.
