Growing the STEM Workforce: Engaging Women & Underrepresented Minorities in Computer Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Computer Science is one of the most rewarding and challenging undergraduate degrees a college student can earn. Yet, only 0.7% of college students graduate from American colleges with a Computer Science degree each year when the technology industry demand is so high. Recent statistics about the low number of women and underrepresented minority employees in many of the large technology companies further stress the opportunity to build a diverse workforce by introducing a more diverse set of students to computer science.

In this panel, hear from community leaders about programs in Massachusetts that are exploring ways to engage young women and a more diverse set of students to learn to code.
