Woman in ITBaldwin Hackett & Meeks, Inc. (BHMI) is a member of the Women in IT Task Force that the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is sponsoring.   The focus of this effort is to raise $400,000 for programs that will introduce young women to IT, with the goal of doubling the number of women in the College of Information Science & Technology in the next two years.
