Women in Industry and Technology (WIT)
Women in Technology (WIT) is an El Camino College program and a campus club that supports women pursuing non-traditional majors and careers. We encourage women to view non-traditional employment from a practical, hands-on interactive stance.
"Empowers Women for Economic Success"
