Women in Computing ACM-W Chapter

CIRES celebrated 2024 International Women’s Day with the launch of the UQ Association for Computing Machinery – Women (ACM-W) Chapter, a new initiative to support and encourage women in computing at UQ and beyond. As the first university in Australia to establish a Student Chapter, UQ is excited to be welcomed into a global network of professional women in computing.

The UQ ACM-W Student Chapter will provide an environment for students to make professional and social connections, learn about technology, get career advice, participate in mentoring, organise events, and provide community service. The chapter is led by CIRES Centre Director, Professor Shazia Sadiq and supported by ten Student Leaders who promote and celebrate the achievements of UQ’s women in computing community.

The Association for Computing Machinery – Women (ACM-W) celebrates, and advocates for Women in Computing with more than 70,000+ members world-wide.
