Wilmington University is committed to supporting young women and minorities in technology careers and celebrating the achievements of ascendant trailblazers. Beverly Peterson, of WilmU’s master’s program in Information Systems Technology, delivered an inspiring address on the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations in Computing Award Ceremonies.

Hosted by Bank of America, the event recognized the remarkable achievements in IT made by young women and girls, genderqueer, or non-binary students in grades 9-12.  

Peterson, who began teaching at WilmU as an adjunct more than 30 years ago, shared her experience in technology and the necessity of looking forward. Her work experience includes leading technical teams to support IT systems and ensuring standards in human resources systems.

In her address, she emphasized the benefits of AI in personalized learning, teaching efficiency, data-driven insights, and innovative learning experiences.

Chartered by the National Science Foundation, NCWIT empowers women of all races, ethnicities, social classes, ages, and disability status. Since 2007, NCWIT has honored more than 25,000 high school students.
