|National and Global Organizations|
Important organizations supporting the technology industry and computer science.
American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T)
Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
Association for Women in Computing The Association for Women in Computing was founded in 1978 and was one of the first professional organizations for women in computing. They have chapters worldwode, as well as individual members.
American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) A nonprofit member association, founded in 1893, dedicated to promoting and improving engineering and technology education.
Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology A nationally recognized organization that provides platforms allowing women’s voices, ideas and spirits to influence technology. The mission is to increase the impact of women on all aspects of technology, to increase the positive impact of technology on the lives of the world’s women, and to help communities, industry, education and government benefit from these increases.
Association of Information Technology Professionals The leading, worldwide society of professionals in information technology.
Code.org Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer programming. We believe computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
Computer Science Online An in-depth website for potential and current students considering a career with computers, software engineering, and more. Our staff is passionate about technology and dedicated to helping others find the information they need to make decisions about their future in the fast moving and rapidly growing tech industry.
The Computing Research Association Composed of more than 200 academic departments of computer science, computer engineering, and related fields. Their mission is to strengthen research and advanced education in the computing fields, expand opportunities for women and minorities, and policy work.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society With over 200 chapters worldwide, the Computer Society was formed, "to advance the theory, practice, and application of computer and information processing science and technology.” This society traces its roots back to 1971, and is also a part of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Girls Who Code's vision is to reach gender parity in computing fields. We believe this is paramount to ensure the economic prosperity of women, families, and communities across the globe, and to equip citizens with the 21st century tools for innovation and social change. We believe that more girls exposed to computer science at a young age will lead to more women working in the technology and engineering fields.
Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) Serves the professional and scientific needs of Operations Research and Management Sciences investigators, scientists, educators, students, and managers, as well as the institutions they serve where Operations Research (OR) and the Management Sciences (MS) are the professional disciplines that deal with the application of information technology for informed decision-making.
National Center for Women in Technology NCWIT works to correct the imbalance of gender diversity in technology and computing because gender diversity positively correlates with a larger workforce, better innovation, and increased business performance. Increasing the number of women in technology and computing also has the potential to improve the design of products and services to better serve a more diverse population, and increase economic and social well-being by providing more women with stable and lucrative careers.
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Dedicated to advancing the application of mathematics to science and industry, to promoting mathematical research that could lead to effective new methods and techniques for science and industry, and to providing media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, engineers, and scientists. In conjunction with the AMS, they also provide career information and services to the mathematics community through the AMS-SIAM Mathematics Careers Bulletin Board which is an interactive service that informs students about non-academic career choices in the mathematical sciences.
UPGlobal We are on a mission to make the world a more innovative and prosperous place, one community at a time. We believe that entrepreneurs are critical to driving a strong global economy and a better world. We do our part by supporting the grassroots leaders who are at the core of every strong entrepreneurial community.
USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association Founded in 1975, USENIX brings together engineers, system administrators, scientists, and technicians working in computer science.
Women Who Code is a global non-profit dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers. We provide an avenue into tech, empower women with skills needed for professional advancement, and provide environments where networking and mentorship are valued. The organization has executed more than 900 events around the world, garnered a membership exceeding 14,000, and has a presence in 14 countries.
