Having not had an opportunity to meet in person with our community since the beginning of COVID-19, I have opted for this less personal way to reach out to you. I recognize that in an organization as large and structurally complex as ACM, communication with all constituencies, while challenging, is essential. I would like to begin this series with some reflections on ACM's core values.
Events of the past two years have raised the social consciousness of us all. There is a desire by many to work in areas of computing that have the potential to improve our society. There is also a desire to be part of a professional organization whose values reflect who we are as individuals. Over time, ACM has defined a set of core values that underlie all our activities and interactions. These values are technical excellence, education and technical advancement, ethical computing and technology for positive impact, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion.
