Abstract

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is a major force in advancing the skills of information-technology professionals and students worldwide. It was founded in 1947, and today has about 80,000 members. This article summarizes how this organization views the issue of women’s participation in the hi-tech field. As it turns out, though the topic is addressed extensively in the association’s newsletters and reports, women representation in these fields remains low.
