A Message on Diversity and ACM's 2018 General Election

As the ACM election process begins its biannual schedule, I want to draw attention to the importance of thinking about diversity in our elected bodies. This consideration should be a matter of interest, not only to the nominations committee, but to the electorate as well.

In the past several years, ACM has invested time and effort to become more geographically inclusive through the creation of the ACM-Europe, ACM-China, and ACM-India Councils. We have more work to do along those lines in other regions of geographic importance. Equally important are other axes of diversity including gender and ethnicity. We want our elected officials to reflect the diversity of the computing industry and, frankly, we want to help increase the diversity in this sector. The statistics of involvement in computing are notably out of balance with too few women and too little representation among ethnic groups. The computing community will be well served to increase the participation of diverse constituents and that is equally true of ACM’s elected and appointed positions. I hope you will take these points into account as you consider recommendations for nominees for our elected posts, our awards, and member advancement opportunities. Similarly, as voting begins, please keep in mind the value of diversity on our boards and councils.

Vinton G. Cerf,
Past President
