Johnson, also committee co-chair for the Rhode Island NCWIT, delivered welcoming remarks at the event.
“NCWIT’s work leverages programs from organizations across the country, and connects efforts to increase women’s participation in information technology along the entire pipeline, from K-12 and higher education through industry and academic careers,” Kathy Zettl-Schaffer, regional affiliate manager for the National Center of Women and Information Technology, said. “The Rhode Island affiliate of the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing is a wonderful example of this collaborative effort led by dedicated volunteers.”
Brooke Forbes, senior vice president of technology, Fidelity Investments, said Fidelity “is proud to partner with NCWIT, Roger Williams University and Tech Collaborative to host these awards, and to celebrate the young women who are passionately pursuing their interest in technology, and the educators who inspire and encourage them.”
This is the fourth year the Aspiration Awards have been presented in Rhode Island.
