Latinas in Computing (LiC) is a community created by and for the Latinas in computing with a mission of promoting their representation and success in computing-related fields. LiC and CAHSI collaborate together in efforts for the advancement of female Hispanics in computing through different events and activities.In coordination with Latinas in Computing and the CRA Computer Diversity Committee (CDC) with feedback from the Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), the CDC published the Latinas in Computing! booklet that presents successful Latinas in computing.

Since 1997, MentorNet has paired more than 32,000 STEM student protégés with professionals working in STEM fields in effective mentorships. MentorNet’s evidence-based program encourages students’ persistence in their degree programs. MentorNet protégés are successful and diverse: 92% of MentorNet protégés graduate with a STEM degree and 78% are women or under-represented minorities.

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.

The goal of the Young Women in Computing (YWiC) program is to gain the interest of young women in the various fields of computer science. YWiC also works with teachers, counselors, and education administrators to specialize a workshop in almost any environment, focused on computing, technology, and how the discipline is a foundation for future advancements in any field!

Since 2012, CAHSI established a formal partnership with SACNAS, a society of scientists dedicated to advancing Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans in science and now computing areas.
