Over the past few years, in collaboration with ACM, CRA-W invited international observers to attend CRA-W’s Graduate Cohort Workshops, with the goal of creating similar events in their home countries. The representatives experienced first-hand how the event is structured and the impact it has on students. We are excited to share that this has resulted in several international versions of the Grad Cohort program based on the CRA-W model:
- Barcelona, Spain: October 18-19, 2018
- Cork, Ireland: February 1 and 8, 2019
- India: July 5-6, 2019 (now in its second year)
Each event is unique to the host country. All follow the two-day structure and give students the opportunity to learn from senior professionals. While CRA-W’s Grad Cohort is only open to graduate students in the US and Canada, these events give students around the world the chance to build communities of women in computing.
