womENcourage: Want to save the world? Be a computer scientist!
"I wanted to change the world... So I became a computer scientist," declared a PhD student of computer science at Cambridge University during a discussion called “What can you do to change the world?”, part of our first ACM-W Europe Celebration of Women in Computing.
Computer scientists from 28 countries convened in Manchester, UK on Saturday March 1st for the first womENcourage celebration of women in computing.
Sit with me - Red Chair
"Sometimes you have to sit to take a stand."
Red Chair is a symbolic action, designed by sitwithme.org, to recognize the value of women in computing and IT. The campaign aims to invite women in technology to validate and recognize the important role they play in creating the future by taking a small but symbolic action: sit in a red chair and share your story. On the 1st of March, 2014, during ACM-W Europe's First womENcourage event, womENcouragers had an opportunity to sit on the Red Chair and share their stories to take a stand!
