Our mission (ACM-W at UC)

The purpose of UC ACM-W is to increase recruitment and retention of women in computing at the University of Cincinnati. The number of women in computer science and other fields of computing is falling and we will strive to educate women throughout the pipeline, girls in K-12, undergraduate and graduate students on the benefits of a computing. The organization will aim to align with the university’s diversity campaign and will serve as an outreach organization for current women and also, men in the field of computing.


National average of women in computing = 15%
Women in computing at UC = 8.9%(2% increase from last year!)

An ACM-W chapter at UC offers students activities and projects that aim to improve the working and learning environments for women in computing.

This will help us meet the national average and build a community of women in computing at UC!

National Chapter for ACM-W

"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"
