Our student chapter is dedicated to promoting and supporting women’s presence and involvement in technology, particularly in the computing field. Our purpose is to empower and inspire women in computing related fields by providing resources, mentorship, and networking opportunities to help them excel in their careers. We aim to create an inclusive environment that encourages equal opportunities, diversity, and innovation; hence we welcome all genders and all backgrounds who share our purpose.
Our vision is to establish a thriving community in Ottawa & Gatineau Region where women in the computing related fields are celebrated, valued, and empowered. We envision a future where our chapter becomes a talent hub for the industry and helps close the gender parity in computing industry and in related fields.
We aim to create a community that fosters meaningful connections, professional growth, leadership opportunities and personal growth for women and other underrepresented groups. Our chapter serves not only its members but also Ottawa-Gatineau Community. Through technical workshops, career support programs, networking events, and collaborations with like-minded organizations, we aim to bridge the gender gap in computing fields and foster equity, diversity, and inclusion values in our community. Another mission objective for our chapter is to encourage and endorse the volunteer efforts of our members in community work.
