Explore. Expand. Evolve. The NM Celebration of Women in Computing will bring together students, faculty, business leaders, informal and formal K-12 educators, and technology experts from across NM and neighboring states to discuss the role of women in today's computing and STEM fields, share experiences and strategies for success, and explore issues common to women working in these fields. The goal is to provide an opportunity for women to explore opportunities in computing, to network with other groups from academia, industry and government, and to create friendships among women and men in the region who share the same interest and passion for computing and STEM. This celebration is part of a nationwide effort to address the alarming decline of women choosing computer science and STEM professions. This regional conference is a collaborative effort being modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing and the National Girls Collaborative Kickoff Conferences.
