WGU’s WinTech Club is advocating for more women in tech by providing leadership, professional development, networking, and mentoring education. Members benefit from interacting, connecting and learning from each other and industry leaders at various stages of their careers. You can expect a community of supporters and information relevant to the field of technology. Come network with other students, attend our monthly live events, discuss careers, search and post questions on various courses to gain valuable tips.

The Accountability group was created for club members in need of support as they work through their academic, career and personal goals. The group is a private channel on our Microsoft Teams site, and members can join on a rolling basis or exit the group whenever they want. Here, we are focused on each other's progress, blockers and challenges. We ask for help around problem solving, cheer each other on with each success, and the focus is being accountable to our goals.

  1. Create SMART goals. Make sure that it is a specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound goal. 
  2. Be honest. If you aren’t going into it 100%, you aren’t going to get what you need. Be prepared to get real in these meetings about what is happening with your goal. 
  3. Share your progress and challenges: Yes, we aren't just interested in your progress report but we want you to feel comfortable sharing your challenges too.
  4. Get ready to work on your actionable tasks. At the end of each meeting, each person walks away with a clear picture of what their next move is.
  5. Weekly check in: We meet every Thursday at 8pm EST on the Accountability group teams channel to check in on each other. This conversations are important because this is an opportunity to connect and see how we can support each other on this journey.
