OIST Bhopal - ACM-W Event

ABOUT ACM-W India

ACM-W India seeks to take forward the task of the ACM community, but with a particular focus on the empowerment of women in computing in India. 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. ACM-W Student Chapters are created to help recruit and retain students in computing programs. Professional Chapter-sponsored activities educate women about careers in computing and provide networking opportunities.

ACM-W India aims to provide social and professional support for women in computing, and its proposed activities include:

  • Facilitate technical growth of women by organizing invited lectures, seminars, workshops and informal meetings
  • Provide a platform for the sharing of information, resources, ideas and experiences
  • Support women in their professional career growth and help them to face the challenges in their work environment
  • Encourage them to participate in computer-related studies and research

ACM-W India's goal would be to also promote computer literacy, particularly in rural India, with the objective of empowering underprivileged women and children, to enable them to be independent and self-reliant.
