The Australian Computer Society (ACS) is a network of more than 48,000 members, all part of the information and tech sector.

From its foundation in 1966, ACS has supported those in the tech sector. It is a member of the World Economic Forum, and takes particular pride in spotlighting young leaders and women.

As part of their membership, ACS offers profiles to help members share their platforms and experiences in the industry.

This is particularly useful for pointing a spotlight on the women making waves in the tech sector – much like the Women Leading Tech awards themselves.

One example is a profile ACS did of Lucy Lin AACS, founder and CMO of Forestlyn and a member of NSW’s Branch Executive Committee.

In the profile, Lin shared some of her insights into the challenges of tech marketing. She observed that three of the issues currently facing the industry were brands not knowing their customers, relying on jargon-filled communication, and failing to change with the times.

Reflecting on her appointment to the NSW Branch Executive Committee of the ACS, Lin described the opportunity as “an absolute honour.”

“My goal is to bring in fresh thinking and new ideas to the Committee and suggest or inject in new practices that would bring about some structural changes. I am passionate about women in tech, and I want to provide as much support into the diversity and inclusion agenda as possible.”

ACS also shares member spotlights on its YouTube channel.

Membership with ACS allows those at the beginning or at the peak of their careers to connect with others in the industry, and stay on top of current events.

For our NSW Women Leading Tech winners and speakers, access to that membership, and a profile, is now free.

Members of ACS have access to workshops, upcoming events and talks with leaders in the industry.

For example, all ACS Victoria members have been invited to attend a ‘Fintech Gym’, a workshop designed to help businesses prepare for international launch.

If membership with the ACS interests you, or if you are a Women Leading Tech winner, please contact martin.turner@acs.org.au
