Nigerian Women in Information Technology

Women in ICT blog has learnt that the Nigerian Women in Information Technology (NIWIT) is a new interest group of the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS). The motto of NIWIT is "Advancing the use of Information Technology amongst women".  

 NIWIT is a new Interest Group in NCS like ITAN, ISPON, ISPAN, etc. Women in ICT blog was informed that membership is open to female members of NCS, CPN and any woman involved in IT. Since NCS requires every registered member to belong to an interest group, Women in ICT blog observes that is now an option for all women in the IT industry.
