Archived: The Collaborative Research Experiences for Undergraduates - Canada program provided undergraduate women in computer science and computer engineering the opportunity to gain research experience with a female faculty member for a summer internship. If you are interested in this program for your institution please contact Melissa Borts.

This award recognizes women working in industrial/government research labs who have had a positive and significant impact on advancing women in the computing research community.

The Computing Research Association's Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W) and the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC), are pleased to announce a program that encourages and supports undergraduate student research.

These workshops provide career mentoring advice and discipline-specific overviews of a particular field. Workshops help young researchers in industry and government labs develop interest and knowledge about the discipline. Some speakers are drawn from research labs.

The Distinguished Lecture Series sends researchers working in labs to campuses to encourage women and minorities to attend graduate school and consider careers in research.

Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates (DREU) was known as the Distributed Mentor Project (DMP) prior to 2009. The objective of the DREU is to increase the number of women and underrepresented groups entering graduate studies in the fields of computer science and engineering.

The labs track of the Early CMW workshop (Early CMW-L) provides mentoring and information for junior professionals in government and industry research labs, as well as PhD students interested in pursuing careers in those labs.  The education track (Early CMW-E) is designed to provide advice and mentoring for junior faculty and graduate students interested in a career in academia.

The Mid Career Mentoring Workshops (including Mid CMW-E, Mid CMW-L, and Mid CMW-R) help mid-career women working in academe as researchers or educators, and in industry or government research labs significantly advance in their careers. Those in academe at research or teaching institutions should be striving to reach the full professor level. Those in industry should be striving to reach the top of the technical ladder as a distinguished scientist or fellow, or to enter into research management.

ProfessHers is a moderated mailing list for women faculty members in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology to informally discuss issues related to their jobs and being successful in their careers.

ResearcHers is a discussion mailing list whose purpose is to provide a space for communication and networking of women in computer science research, breaking the isolation of women computer scientists in industry, government labs, and academia.
