Pride Month Past Campaigns

At ACM, our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity is fundamental to our mission. Awareness months are a time dedicated to reflection, education, and engagement to embrace the diversity within the ACM community. This archival webpage documents past ACM social media campaigns for Pride Month (June 1-30). Our social media campaigns work to honor the accomplishments of LGBTQ+ computing professionals and educate others about their impact on the computing world.
