ACM-W Europe


ACM-W Europe (ACM-WE) is a standing committee of ACM Europe and will work to fulfill the ACM-W mission in Europe. Our vision is to cultivate and inspire people about the opportunities in computer science and clear the pathways throughout Europe for women in computing.

Our main goals are to:

  • Promote the image of computing
  • Raise awareness of the importance of women being in the computing profession
  • Make women aware of career options in computing
  • Promote new ways of facing the challenges of the next generation of women in computing
  • Establish partnerships with similar existing organizations in Europe for appropriate activities
  • Increase participation of women in senior level positions of ACM and its conferences
  • Provide a platform for sharing resources, ideas and experiences
  • Work with the EU and the European Commission on programmes related to women in computing
