ACM-W is the ACM committee for Women in technical fields. It celebrates, informs and supports women in computing, and works with the ACM-W community of computer scientists, educators, employers and policy makers to improve working and learning environments for women. The chapter provides a variety of activities to educate women about the opportunities in the field of computing, engage female students in exciting technical activities, connect students with women leaders in the field, encourage students to promote the field of technical careers to young girls, and promote the activities of ACM. In the words of Swami Vivekananda ``There can be no development of the society unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly with one wing``. Women want to be treated as equals so much so that if a woman rises to the top of her field it should be a commonplace occurrence that draws nothing more than a raised eyebrow at the gender. We know that, even as the number of students in the different branches increases, there are still relatively few women. There have been many articles and reports describing the situation of women in technical fields.
About UPES ACM-W Student Chapter
The UPES ACM-W Chapter aims to create leadership opportunities for women in the fields of computers and information technology. This is one chapter reserved especially for women so that the tag of women being technically handicapped is resolved. The pre-conceived notions on women for not being able to excel in technical areas has to be removed completely and that is what we aim to do through this Chapter. We constantly try to encourage more and more women to participate in technical activities. We endeavor to promote a healthy learning and working environment for all our members. All our hard work has definitely been paid off as we were successfully able to organize many events and activities throughout the session. Through such activities and events, we always try our best to provide a platform to all the young intellectuals who aspire to turn their ideas into reality and showcase their talent. Each and every one of our members has worked really hard in organizing such exhilarating and fun activities. We put all our efforts to inculcate new ideas and to shape raw talent into men and women of tomorrow. We will continue to work hard with determination and diligence to inspire all the female students to strive for success.
