sheCodes is the ACM-W Chapter at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. We work to promote and support the growing community of women in computer science and technology. Our purpose is to support and promote women in CS by encouraging discussion and raising awareness regarding issues surrounding Women in Computer Science.
Join us at some of our amazing events.
We host general meetings every Monday in Building 8, Room 48 from 6:00 - 7:00pm.
Through these, we aim to enhance undergraduate innovation by hosting workshops, inviting guest speakers, workshops, and designing activities geared towards our members' interests. Past speakers include engineers from Microsoft, Airbnb, Zillow, and more! We're happy for anyone to come, no matter your level of involvement to sheCodes If you're a woman and you're interested in CS, join us!
There are a lot of ways for you to get involved. The easiest 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.
The mentorship program matches every Freshman and Sophomore woman in Computer Science with an older woman who is also studying CS. 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 will give young women a taste of the tremendous creativity and innovation involved in computer science and engineering or science career, and show young women how these fields can help change the world. 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.
From time to time, sheCodes goes out as a club to tour local tech companes. If you'd like to learn more or join us, please email us.
