"This conference really lights a fire under your feet about CS research.”

Previous participants speak out about OurCS


OurCS has a tradition of working closely with industry and research groups to both understand critical gender issues in professional settings, as well as exploring job opportunities for women researchers in computing related domains.

The School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University welcomes sponsors to join us in supporting OurCS for women undergraduates in the United States and around the world.

Exclusive sponsorship gives a single company or computing related domain full brand exposure for a single offering of OurCS. This includes high-profile recognition on the OurCS web site, and inclusion in CMU-based media articles, press releases and all event-related announcements. Additionally, sponsors are asked to recommend potential speakers and mentors for OurCS events.

Co-sponsorships provide similar identity opportunities, only shared among two or more co-sponsors and providing around $25,000 each.

We welcome gifts at any level from secondary sponsors and will provide online visibility and recognition for their contributions!

The two primary value propositions for sponsors are:  taking a high-profile leadership position in the global effort to recognize and encourage women in computer science; and two, direct connection to a pool of top talent in the field, including access to student resumes (with their permission). For companies and research groups with strong STEM priorities, this is an opportunity to have a measurable, long-term impact on the field.
