For several years, ACM-W has been an active advocate for women in computing. With ACM's increasing international membership, regional Councils have been created and groups within them are taking up this same mission. Two years ago, the ACM Europe Council formed ACM-WE to sponsor European initiatives for women in computing.

Europe, of course, is by no means homogenous with respect to the involvement of women in computing, although many commonalities exist. A goal of ACM-WE is to promote an image of computing that would be more attractive to women. In addition, we seek to provide information about the many different kinds of careers available to women to help them envision a future in computing.
