What is GWiCS?

Founded in 2018, Guelph Women in Computer Science (GWiCS) is a student-run organization that seeks to build a supportive community for women studying computer science, software engineering and related computing degrees at the University of Guelph. This includes cis and trans women as well as non-binary individuals. GWiCS hopes to support the inclusion and retention of these groups in our community!
