The UChicago chapter of the ACM-W is a hub for women with an interest in CS. We host biweekly study breaks and other events throughout the quarter.
The group is open to anyone who identifies as a woman and has an interest in computer science. It’s meant to be a safe space for discussion, meeting other UChicago women in CS, and supporting women in the department. In addition to study breaks, we hold various panels, workshops, and speaker events throughout the year. We also run the following departmental initiatives focused on fostering diversity in the Computer Science department.
Graduate Women in Computer Science (GWiCS)
Graduate Women in Computer Science (GWiCS) is an organization that builds a community of support for female-identifying graduate students in the Computer Science department. Our activities include monthly Sounding Board Socials, recruitment, and advocacy. GWiCS is also part of the Women in Graduate Science organization within the Physical Sciences Division.
