The O – Community – WiC is a state wide community of women and men technology professionals from industry and academia, dedicated to the OCWiC mission:

Engaging and empowering Ohio women in computing by building community, celebrating success, and illuminating possibility.

State-wide Communities fit within the ACMW established framework to provide a stepping stone between local chapters and the (inter)national organization. These community connections are reinforced by biannual regional Celebrations. Ohio will be the first Community WiC, a proof of concept that may be replicated in other regions where Celebrations are already established. (Announcement)
