RECOGnizing Notable Women in Computing
CRA-W launched RECOG to study the recognition and visibility of women in different sub-disciplines of computing.
- Are women less likely to serve in prestigious speaking roles in a given computing sub-discipline?
- Is the ratio of women serving in prominent service roles (general/program chair and professional society leadership positions) similar to the ratio one would expect in a given sub-discipline?
- Are women equitably recognized with key technical awards (such as ACM Fellow), which are quite visible within a given sub-discipline of computing?
A CRA-W Discipline Advocates committee is being formed, in order to assist CRA-W in understanding the status of recognizing women in different disciplines. The CRA-W Discipline Advocates committee will be posted on this page soon.
