Women* in CMS**
What is the WiCMS Steering Committee?
We are a group of undergraduate and graduate students who care deeply about advocating for women in the Computing and Mathematical Sciences department. We brainstorm and plan events and initiatives aimed at creating a welcoming and supportive environment, as well as career/academic development for women in CMS. We are responsible for publicizing those events and others to our respective communities.
