Women in Computer Science at Lehman College was founded to bring together women interested in technology and computer science at the Lehman campus. We aim to support, encourage, empower, and celebrate our community of excellent women leaders and raise awareness of issues women face in tech as well as inspire women to explore and pursue educational and professional opportunities in these fields “beyond the degree” and promote their interests through mentoring, community events, talks, workshops, and conferences.
Who we are:
Lehman College WiCS is a chapter under the Association of Computing Machinery. We provide a community where women can speak frankly and comfortably about issues they face in their career and academic paths and focus our energy and time to combat stereotypes, introduce women to digital skill-building workshops, and soft-skills building workshops.
We also seek to collaborate extensively with other clubs on campus to integrate all underrepresented groups in our local and global community in order to forge inclusive partnerships that benefit all of us collectively.
We are dedicated to building a supportive community of women and allies at Lehman College to empower other women interested in technology and computer science to pursue careers in tech and succeed in a digital world.
