About:

ALICE has been molded by students and employees at Department of Computer Science, and seeks to promote, support and strengthen women in computing sciences, engineering and technology. 

All students, faculty, and alumni who are interested in computing are welcome to join ALICE regardless of gender or the exact field of study. Individuals from the surrounding community and those from companies that are interested in sponsoring our activities are also welcome.

 

Goals:

Our goal is to create a community for women in computing to meet each other. Our primary mission is to provide an environment to encourage their educational & professional development, raise awareness about issues women face in the field, and organize activities to inspire them to pursue careers in computing.
