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.
By highlighting successful technical women who are leading diverse careers in the technology industry, ACM-W’s new webinar series, “Celebrating Technology Leaders“, aims to inform students and early-career professionals about the multitude of career options open to them.
