sheCodes is the ACM-W Chapter at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. We work to promote and support the growing community of women, including allies, in computer science and technology by empowering our members through relevant workshops as well as career advice.
Join us and be a part of our community!
We host general meetings every Thursday in Building 3, Room 2636 from 12:00 - 1:00pm.
Through these, we aim to enhance undergraduate innovation by hosting workshops, inviting guest speakers, and designing activities geared towards our members' interests. Past speakers include engineers from Microsoft, Airbnb, Zillow, Facebook, Google and more! We're here to support you, your interests, and goals with open arms. If you're interested in exploring the different avenues you can take with Computer Science, join us!
There are a lot of ways for you to get involved! The easiest way is to come to our events. We love to see new faces, and that way we can talk in person about how you can be more involved with sheCodes. If you have a specific way you'd like to get involved (like a project you want help with, or a study break idea you want to see executed) send an email to sheCodes.
We also have initiatives that are always looking for new members. sheCodes has a Mentorship Program, Semester Long Projects during fall semester, and a yearly conference called the Future Women's Developer Conference (aka FWD). Read more and reach out to get involved. We're excited to have you.
The mentorship program matches every Freshman and Sophomore in Computer Science with a mentor. The mentor helps the mentee with class selection, internship searches, moral support, academic advice, and generally becomes a much-needed, loving guide to achieving success as a woman in CS. If you'd like to get involved with this program (as a mentor or a mentee), please email us.
Once a year, sheCodes invites middle/high school women to participate in a day filled with interactive workshops and fun activities to expose them to computer science. The Future Women Developers (FWD) program gives young women a taste of the tremendous creativity and innovation involved in computer science, engineering, or career in science. It gives young women tangible ideas about how these fields can help change the world through practical projects. For more information, please visit the FWD site. If you'd like to get involved with FWD (as an leader or volunteer), please email us.
sheCodes organizes tours to local tech companies for our paid members. These are great opportunities to learn more about companies and get insight on different fields within computer science and technology. Previosuly, we've visited: The Jet Propulsion Lab, Google, Qualcomm, Behr, etc. If you'd like to learn more or join us on these tours, please email us.
