Advertising in ACM Publications

ACM Policy on Nondiscriminatory Advertising

ACM accepts recruitment advertising under the basic premise that the advertising employer does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, race, religion, gender, sexual preference or national origin. ACM recognizes however, that laws on such matters vary from country to country and contain exceptions, inconsistencies or contradictions. This is as true of laws of the United States of America as it is of other countries. 

Thus ACM policy requires each advertising employer to state explicitly in the advertisement any employment restrictions that may apply with respect to age, color, race, religion, gender, sexual preference, or national origin. Observance of the legal retirement age in the employer's country is not considered discrimination under this policy.

Communications of the ACM

Communications of the ACM is the leading print and online magazine for the computing and information technology fields.  Read by over 97,000 technology experts every month in print and electronic formats, Communications is recognized as the most trusted and knowledgeable source of industry information for today's computing professional. ACM's membership, recognized internationally as the "computing elite," is made up of the IT industry's most respected leaders and decision makers.
