Committee Updates

Communications

Thank you members for getting involved and helping our committees. We have several new members who joined the communications team this summer. They are all excited to help strengthen the presence of WIT within the University and outside of the community too. In addition, Vanessa Swenson joins the WIT Communication team as Co-Chair!

Drupal Lite 8 is now available to us. The WIT website will be migrating over to Drupal 8 sometime this fall.

Events

Mentorship

The spring mentorship cohort is now at an end. Remember to complete the mentorship program reflection survey if you were a mentee or mentor!

Finance

Do you enjoy writing informative and inspiration proposals? If yes, we are in need of help on the Finance committee. We are looking for individuals interested in searching out and helping to submit grants for future WIT initiatives. Feel free to reach out to [email protected] if this strikes a chord with you.

Partnerships & Collaboration

We are finalizing our plan to implement a UMN women in technology profiles website. Also, we will post a summary of the WIT IT Experience Survey results in the next newsletter.
