The purpose of this organization is to establish a support system among minorities or allies of minorities who study computer science or related STEM fields.
OMTECH is dedicated to helping everyone gain self-confidence and "computer confidence" by becoming involved in activities and project that enable people to skillfully and comfortable use technology and creating a safe place for asking questions all while promoting learning. This is achieved by various activities such as mentoring or role modeling, guest speakers, company tours, or team building exercises.
However, OMTECH also sees value in simply creating a fun and inviting atmosphere with people. We aim to hold meetings that also allow people to unwind, relax, and socialize with a group of people who also know what is like to want to chuck your computer against a wall because you can't fix a bug.
Lastly, while we are a computer science affiliated organization, we welcome any major!
