A Massachusetts-based college that has been a leader in providing accountancy students with RPA training has joined the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). Nichols College has made it a priority in their business program that every student be exposed to RPA. As part of its alliance with NCWIT, the Dudley, Mass.-based institution said it will engage women and other underrepresented students in computing and technology education, explicitly including RPA.
The school said joining NCWIT will have “immediate benefits for women in RPA at Nichols.”
“Nichols is leading the way in preparing students to master the AI technology that is transforming the business landscape,” said Kerry Calnan, DBA, vice president of innovation and institutional effectiveness. “Our alliance with NCWIT will play an integral role in attracting women to this revolutionizing field and the countless career opportunities it offers.”
As a member of NCWIT, Nichols can offer its students access to additional resources like internships, job opportunities and networking among members at 650 colleges and universities working to broaden the participation of women in computing.
