Women+ in Computer Science (WiCS) is dedicated to promoting gender equity in computing by advocating for and supporting women, trans, gender-fluid, gender-queer, and non-binary students enrolled in computer science and related computing programs at the University of Waterloo. Specifically, WiCS initiatives and events foster community, empowerment, and mentorship:
- to ensure that young women+ see computer science as an option in their studies and their careers
- to create an inclusive learning and working environment in the School of Computer Science
- to connect with other organizations and initiatives for women+ in computing
WiCS Undergraduate Committee
WiCS has a very active undergraduate committee (warmly called "Little WiCS") that is student-run. They offer a number of events throughout the year, including the Big CSters Mentoring program, technical workshops, a speaker series, and panels and discussions about diversity in computer science and STEM.
Visit their office in MC 3029, or visit their website.
