The Explore Careers In Technology Event (ExCITE) is a quarterly event sponsored by the CIO Council and the People of Color in Technology (POC-IT) affinity group. ExCITE is focused on career advancement and increasing internal DEI hiring within the Stanford technology community.

This inaugural event will be Zoom-only. ExCITE is open to all of Stanford including the Hospitals/Clinics and SLAC.

This event will provide multiple opportunities to learn more about job shadowing and connect with others to hear about the technology roles and fields at Stanford. See session information below.

If you work in a technology role or field, or if you are interested in getting into a technology role or field, ExCITE is the place for you!

If you need a disability-related accommodation (such as sign language interpretation) contact Tiana Ferreira at 650-270-8171 or email  and . Requests should be made by Oct. 28.
