CERN Accelerating science

About us

How it started

The idea for a CERN WIT group began in early 2016, when several new members of the IT department realised that the Women in Technology networks from which they had benefited at university and in industry did not exist at CERN, or even in the Geneva area.

After speaking with like-minded colleagues, they decided to found a group at CERN where colleagues could exchange ideas on common topics and share career advice and experiences. Thus the "Women in Technology at CERN" initiative came on the scene, to complement the other professional community networks within the diverse CERN environment.
