“Every member of our workforce, especially women, should be encouraged to reach their full potential in order to keep Hawaii in pace with the changing technological landscape.”
– U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye
In 1999, the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB) created the Women in Technology (WIT) Project to work in partnership with educators and businesses to build and strengthen Hawaii’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education-to-workforce pipeline.
To accomplish this, WIT strives to motivate under-utilized resources such as women and minorities toward technology-related fields. According to the latest national studies, women represent the largest under-utilized national resource of great potential in science and technology.
For the past decade, WIT has been at the forefront of inspiring and providing cutting-edge STEM programs across the islands to meet those 21st century workforce demands.
