About Us

We are a networking group for women and PhD students of under-represented genders in Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. The group is meant to serve as a platform for networking, discussion of special interest topics, and as a neutral and safe social space for its members.

We have regular meet-ups, at least once every month during the academic school year. Previous meet-ups have included invited speakers, and brown-bag lunches. Members have also organized happy hour meet-ups for the group.
