Supporting, Celebrating and Advocating for Women in Computing


Mission Statement

ACM-W supports, celebrates, and advocates internationally for the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field, providing a wide range of programs and services to ACM members and working in the larger community to advance the contributions of technical women. View ACM-W

One of the most popular ways to celebrate women in computing is by starting and/or attending an ACM-W Celebration of Women in Computing; the accomplishments of women in computing are at the heart of ACM-W’s e-Newsletter.

Celebrations of Women in Computing

ACM Celebrations of Women in Computing connect technical women who are working/studying within a particular geographical location – with locations that could be a single city, a state or group of states, a country, or several countries. These conferences build community and break down feelings of isolation. Our intention is to reach the broadest possible populations through an international network of self-sustaining small conferences, dovetailing when possible with ACM-W chapters.

Imagine yourself surrounded by 200 computer science students, all ready to network and share their experiences! Our ACM Celebrations of Women in Computing showcase women involved in the computing industry and computer science research, encourage mentoring and networking, include career fairs and panel sessions, and create opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research and projects through poster competitions and presentations. More than 30 celebrations throughout the US and the world inspire women to excel in their chosen field--find one near you or start a new one!
