A Fellow is the highest grade of membership in the ACS, and is one of the formal ways in which the ACS can recognise an outstanding contribution to the profession. The FACS post nominal indicates that the ACS recognises the individual has made an outstanding contribution to the development of ICT in Australia.
ACS Victoria would like to congratulate Annamieke on becoming the latest Victorian Fellow.
Dr Annemieke Craig has made a distinguished contribution to the field of information and communications technology in Australia by her nationally and internationally recognised efforts to attract, support and retain women in computing over a long period of time.
Dr Craig's research is highly regarded globally and she tirelessly supports students, teachers and professional women through her enduring work with the Go Girl and Digital Divas programs.
Her leadership and contribution, amongst others, has seen a shift in attitudes and a growing awareness of the value of gender diversity within the computing profession and its benefit to industry.
We are looking forward to welcoming Annamieke as an ACS Fellow at an upcoming Victorian Branch Forum.
