About our chapter

The Duke chapter of ACM-W was established in 2008 after the students came back motivated with a new sense of community from Grace Hopper Conference 2007. The chapter continues to exist to provide support for women in pursuing computer related careers, finding like-minded colleagues, learning new skills and enjoying other CS-related pursuits.

We are grateful to the first Duke ACM-W president Urmi Majumdar for her initiative in getting the chapter started. We would also like to thank Professor Susan Rodger for accepting the position of Chapter Sponsor and being there for the chapter with her constant guidance and support.
