MISSION

AWT’s mission is to cultivate a community of women interested in technology and to foster their personal and professional success by providing opportunities to connect, learn, grow, and lead.


About AWT:


Chartered in 2000, Austin Women in Technology (AWT) is an Austin-based 501(c)(3) organization. AWT was formed as a professional organization committed to providing a venue for women in technology to network and assist others who work in or have a passion for technology.

Many of the AWT founding members have been identified as trailblazers, and have the hard-won experience of being firsts, including:

    • the first in their families to attend college
    • the first to study in a particular technical field or work for a technology company
    • the first woman on a management team, board or project
    • the first to start a company
AWT continues to provide a support and intellectual system for women pushing their own boundaries, whether they be the first, fiftieth or five hundreth to achieve their goals.
AWT accomplishes this purpose by building a visible community of individuals supporting women in technology.  We offer valuable programming that enables networking and helps members learn more about a variety of topics of interest to women in technology.  Members can also take advantage of the opportunity to work side-by-side with other intelligent, community-minded women as part of our volunteer committees and board.

The cornerstones of the AWT doctrine are to CONNECT, LEARN, GROW and LEAD, and are supported in the following manner:

  • CONNECT with Austin's fun, successful, intelligent, tech-minded community at events and through social media.
  • LEARN something new at one of our informative presentations or interactive discussions about technology, careers, community and the world.
  • GROW personally and professionally by delving into interesting topics with a motivated community.
  • LEAD through committee and officer roles in the organization, opportunities in the community or by mentoring members.
