Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) is dedicated to increasing the influence of women in technology. AWT accomplishes this through the endowment of educational scholarships and the creation of opportunities to enhance personal and professional growth, working closely with the business community to facilitate diversity and opportunity.
The cornerstone of our organization is our educational scholarship program. Since 2007, AWT’s mission has been to raise college scholarship funds for deserving young women pursuing technology‐related degrees at California colleges, helping them to realize their dream
careers. At the awards event in 2020 we gave out $75,000 in scholarships to 10 very impressive young women.
