The National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) selected Hadiya from a diverse applicant pool of more than 2,300 students. She has been very active in the BDPA Cincinnati chapter for several years. She participated in our High School Computer Camp, National competitions and most recently received a BDPA sponsored internship with Luxottica. She recently earned an Oracle Scholarship for BDPA Students as well. We are extremely excited about this achievement and wait anxiously for what is next to come. “Congratulations to our very own Hadiya Harrigan on her being awarded the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing award! Hadiya represents the all that is valuable for those volunteers and corporate sponsors who invest in BDPA programs that take our students from the classroom to the boardroom”, said BDPA Cincinnati chapter president Dalric Webb. “Hadiya’s personal drive, ambition, and talent are a perfect complement for the BDPA SITES and STEM based initiatives. As a chapter, we endeavor to continue to support Hadiya and all of our students and members in reaching their full potential and advancing their personal careers in the technology space”. Since 2007, the Award for Aspirations in Computing has recognized more than 2,200 young women; more than 71 percent of the recipients currently in college report majoring or minoring in a traditionally male-dominated STEM field. The Award for Aspirations in Computing is a talent development initiative designed to increase female participation in technology by providing structured, long- term engagement and support from middle school through high school and from college into the workforce. The Aspirations in Computing Award is supported nationally by AT&T, Bank of America, Bloomberg, and Microsoft.
