As the world continues to become increasingly technology driven and connected, AV&Co. believes that the best and brightest minds must be engaged in science and technology related fields. Currently, women are underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) careers, indicating a need to close the gap through education, support, and opportunities for women interested in STEM.
We formed the The AV&Co. WIT (Women in Technology) initiative in 2014 to help narrow the gap by encouraging, mentoring and supporting women at all levels of their education and careers to pursue and succeed in STEM-related fields.
We focus on supporting events and activities that:
- Support high school and college aged women interested in STEM studies and career paths
- Provide an internal network for AV&Co. employees to address the unique dynamics for women in their careers at AV&Co.
- Provide a forum for AV&Co., clients and other professionals to address the unique dynamics for women associated with STEM-related careers.
