California’s CalWomenTech Project


In 2006, the Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science (IWITTS) was awarded a $2 million five-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant from the program on Research on Gender in Science and Engineering to fund the CalWomenTech Project. Between 2006 and 2011, eight California community colleges received expert support and technical assistance to help recruit and retain women into technology programs where they were under-represented. The Project was highlighted by NSF in 2009 for demonstrating significant achievement and program effectiveness. The Project finished working with the CalWomenTech colleges in June 2011.  IWITTS submitted a one-page Outcomes Report for the CalWomen Tech Project to NSF after the Project ended that features some of the key CalWomenTech results, strategies and activities.
