Description: 

Las Cruces has been selected to host an ACM New Mexico Celebration of Women in Computing event!

The ACM-NMCWiC Women in Computing celebration will be held November 11 – 12, 2016.

ACM-NMCWiC is a 1.5 day, regionally organized conference sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), modeled after ABI’s international Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. This immersive event brings women (and men!) technologists at all levels together, along with industry leading companies, community programs, and school districts, to build relationships, learn and advance their careers.

Please join us for a day of learning and networking, focused on advancing a gender diverse technology workforce in New Mexico. You will have the opportunity to participate in sessions on technology, career development and a career fair, and explore ways to become, reach or attract a top computer scientist or technologist.
