The Computing Research Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W)

Our mission: To increase the success and participation of women in computing research and education at all levels.

Our programs, people, and materials provide mentoring and support for women at every level of the research pipeline: undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and industry and government researchers.

CRA-W strives to ensure that our activities have a positive impact on all underrepresented groups in CSE. We are committed to improving the working environment and increasing the success of all Computer Scientists and Engineers, without regard for gender, race, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background.

CRA-W celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016.
