Fidelity Investments “Leadership in Technology” Speaker: Dr. Maria Klawe – Broadening Participation in Computing

Auditorium, Hunt Library
Monday, November 20
4:00 PM
Computing is one of the least diverse disciplines in science and engineering in terms of participation by women, African-Americans and Hispanics, and the only discipline where participation by women has significantly decreased over the last three decades. While our discipline does well in encouraging members of underrepresented groups to go on to graduate programs, we have been less successful in attracting members of these groups into undergraduate programs. This talk discusses successful strategies for significantly increasing the number of women and students of color majoring in computer science. This event does not require advance registration. Seating may be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Attendance will be taken by Caitlin Cassidy.
