We are able to do what we do with the help of our generous sponsors.

  • Organize a Site Visit

    We organize tours, tech talks and (of course) lunches at the offices of the best companies in Manhattan. If your company would like to set up a site visit with us,
    send us a note.

  • Co-host an event with WICS

    We welcome any collaborative event, from tech talks to study breaks! If you would like to sponsor an event on Columbia's campus to connect students with opportunities at your company, raise awareness about the cool things you're doing, hold mock interview sessions or just have coffee and cupcakes with us, let us know.

  • Attend our Networking Event

    Every year in early April, we host a networking dinner for Columbia women in computer science, alumni, and corporate guests. We would be happy to have you too, whether as a sponsor or an invited guest!

  • Sponsor WiCS

    WiCS hosts a number of academic and social events throughout the school year, including lunches with faculty, study breaks, and mentorship activities. We also try to send as many students as possible to the Grace Hopper Conference. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these events or providing scholarships to Grace Hopper, definitely get in touch!

  • Open Job Positions
