The University of Waterloo and David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science will host the fourth annual Ontario Celebration of Women in Computing this weekend.
The conference brings together female professionals from across the province, students and faculty who are interested in, or working in, computing. The conference, on November 8 and 9 helps generate excitement about the field while providing attendees with opportunities for networking, sharing and mentoring.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
