Chapters is a framework that includes a cluster of leading organizations that supports WiT in spreading its roots across the country. These organizations invest in generating impact through various social and technical initiatives with focus towards a common objective of increasing the women participation in STEM.
We have over 19 participants in the Delhi NCR Chapter. These organizations will focus on different projects under chapters based on the following pillars:
WiT in partnership with organizations provides programs to reach out to schools and colleges.
Companies engage with faculty, students and parents with focus to encourage and enhance more girls to join STEM and technology domain. This is being done through specific education programs focused on generating awareness in STEM subjects and through real-time experiential learning.
