The CRA-W Grad Cohort program, initiated in 2004, is generously funded by sponsors from industry, ACM, CRA, academia, the National Science Foundation, and the computing community. Grad Cohort aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing-related studies and research by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies.
The Biomedical Data Science Workshop is a 2 day event for underrepresented undergraduates, graduates, and post-doctorate researchers from the US and its territories sponsored by CRA-W and the CDC.
The Workshop on Supporting Diversity in Systems Research (Diversity 2015) is a forum to support traditionally underrepresented students in systems research. It provides minority and female students at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level with valuable opportunities for mentorship and networking.
CRA-W will host Mid and Early Career Mentoring Workshops on June 13-14, 2015 co-located at the Federated Computing Research Conference in Portland, Oregon. The goal of these workshops is to increase the percentage of Computer Science and Engineering women faculty members and researchers/technologists who reach the top of their respective career tracks.
The Grad Cohort Workshop is a two day conference, where participants interact with about 20 senior female computing researchers and professionals. The workshop includes a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. By attending Grad Cohort, participants are able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate career and beyond. The Grad Cohort Workshop is generously funded by sponsors from industry, academia, the National Science Foundation, and the computing community.
CRA-W will provide mentoring tracks for students and researchers at Grace Hopper 2015. CRA-W will also host tables at the Student Opportunity Lab where students can learn about; Undergraduate Research Opportunities, What Happens in Graduate School, How to Apply To Graduate School, and The Differences Between a Masters and a Ph.D.
The CAHSI Summit engages faculty, students, industry, and other collaborators in activities that: ▪ Build connections ▪ Disseminate effective and promising practices ▪ Prepare students for pursuing higher education and productive careers in computing ▪ Promotes conversations and actions that address involvement of Hispanics in Computing.
RESPECT 2015 will serve as the first international meeting sponsored by the IEEE Special Technical Community on Broadening Participation.
