The past year saw many "firsts" for ACM, including the landmark ACM elections resulting in an all-female leadership team, ACM’s debut at the popular South by Southwest (SxSW) Interactive conference, and ACM's monthly Huffington Post blog on significant developments in technology with public implications. ACM is committed to supporting the progress and quality of computing education worldwide and continues to explore new ways to involve our growing and greatly diversified audience. Read the annual report to learn about ACM’s initiatives, services and future programs.
The Huffington Post invited ACM to contribute a monthly blog on current issues in technology and society. ACM member blog posts are intended to provide insightful, thought-provoking articles to Huffington Post readers on a variety of computing and information technology topics, and show how computing and information technology are ubiquitous in our daily lives. ACM bloggers explore the impact of technology on society and how this impact may evolve in the future.
Public Policy Issues
Daily headlines about cybersecurity, encryption, artificial intelligence, drones, and a host of other issues, underscore the growing and complicated relationship between computing and public policy. In the US and Europe, ACM educates policymakers, the computing community and the public with the goal of fostering enlightened policies.

Advancing Computer Science Education at All Levels
ACM is at the forefront of advancing computer science education at all levels. Some recent reports outline ACM's findings in this area.
In her blog post for Computer Weekly's WITsend blog, ACM President Vicki Hanson discusses ACM's all-female leadership team, how diversity is helping to redefine what a computing professional is, and how the digital world is expanding career opportunities for non-technical people. "While most will not become expert, basic skills will be required for them to be effective in their careers and to deal with the myriad of online offerings for communication, entertainment, retail, and government services," she says.
