A Call to All ACM-W Chapters! Now is the Time to Find Your Buddy
Are you an ACM-W Chapter in collaboration with another ACM/ACM-W chapter? We love to hear from you! And if you don’t have a collaborator, partner, a buddy, it’s time to have one!
We are starting a new campaign and encouraging all ACM-W chapters to partner with other ACM-W chapters from the same/different state, country, or region to become a Buddy. Your partnerships can be created to achieve some common goal, be it Academic, Social, Professional or Service. We are inviting you to tell us how as ACM-W chapter buddies, you work towards a common goal and provide a shared experience for your diverse community members.
To be part of this campaign, you can work with
- Local Buddies: ACM-W Chapter(s) present in the neighbourhood, e.g., the same state in the US.
- Country Buddies (CB): ACM-W Chapter(s) established in the same country.
- Region Buddies (RB): ACM-W Chapter(s) present in a region.
- Global Buddies (GB): ACM-W Chapter(s) from other regions
You can use the collaboration ideas recommended in the following resources:
- One Hundred One Ideas for ACM-W Chapters: https://www.acm.org/chapters/acm-w-chapter-activities
- ACM-W Chapter-in-a-Box: http://www.acm.org/binaries/content/assets/chapters/chapter-in-a-box_acm-w.pdf
Contact us at acm-w at acm dot org to tell us about your current experience or plans on how you collaborate with your buddies and empower women in computing locally, in your country, region or globally. We will share your stories in our newsletter and on our website January-December 2023. We are looking forward to hearing from all ACM-W Chapters around the world!
