ACM-W Annual Report 2018-2019

Mission and Impact

From the Chair

Celebrating, supporting, and advocating for women in computing is the mission and motivating force behind the work of ACM-W. In this inaugural annual report we hope to show our many members and supporters the impact ACM-W has had worldwide this past year. The words and photos herein convey the exciting and vibrant nature of our work. Global growth has been and will continue to be a primary focus of ACM-W. In recent months our regional committees in Europe, India, North America have been joined by new groups in China (now an official committee) and Asia Pacific (a committee in the making). In the coming year, our goal is to expand into South America where much work on behalf of women in computing is already happening in places such as Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Peru. I am honored to be involved in the success of this organization. I hope that after reading this story of 2018–2019, you will join us in this fulfilling work.
