Volunteer and Participate in CRA-WP Activities

The Computing Research Association’s Committee on Widening Participation in Computing Research (CRA-WP) is an action-oriented organization that strives to ensure that our activities have a positive impact on all underrepresented populations 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.

Our mission: To widen the participation and improve the access, opportunities, and positive experiences of individuals from populations underrepresented in computing research and education.
