ACM Women's Chapter (ACM-W)

In addition to the official mission of ACM-W, which is to celebrate, inform and support women in computing and work with the ACM-W community of computer scientists, educators, employers and policy makers to improve working and learning environments for women, the Santa Clara University ACM-W chapter aims to facilitate a thriving community of women in computer through the organizing of activities, networking and mentorship programs. We aim to address the issue of retention of women in computer science and engineering by creating a support system for academic and professional pursuits and empowering our members to pursue their goals through knowledge and education about women's contribution to technology. For our third year we plan to implement a speaker series to learn about the inspiring work and journeys of women in our fields and work on fostering a strong community among women in computing at SCU.
