The ACM Celebration of Women in Computing: AfricaCWIC is aimed at connecting women from diverse technical disciplines and encouraging them pursue their education and profession in computing. For the purpose of gender diversity, this event is open to both male and female participants.
AfricaCWIC brings together undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, academics and practitioners to present and share their achievements and experiences. There shall be keynote from distinguished women personalities from both Academic and Industry to discuss the theme as it relates to experiences in the computing profession.
AfricaCWIC was hosted for the first time in Africa in 2022 with participants joining from around the world. This year we will host the second AfricaCWIC in what we hope will be a very long lived series of events. This year’s team of experts are putting together a great programme. Join us for this first event of many!
