According to sitwithme.org, The Red Chair movement is also referred to as Sit With Me. This movement recognizes the importance of diversifying the workforce in technological positions.
Sometimes you have to sit to take a stand. Sit With Me invites you to validate and recognize the important role women play in creating future technology by taking a small but symbolic action: sit in a red chair and share your story. Pull up a chair and listen to stories from others; men, women, technical and non-technical, as they sit in the red chair.
Sit With Me was created by members of the National Center for Women & Information Technology, a non-profit coalition that works to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing fields and careers.
Hodges University is excited to be a part of the Sit With Me campaign. We have prepared The Red Chair and stand ready to hear and acknowledge the valuable contributions of women in computing and technology.
We also host an annual NCWIT banquet to honor high school girls in technology, helping to create a future of women who embrace technology careers.
