Commissioning research to get to the root of the problem
To change the face of the tech industry, we need more women and minorities studying computer science. But today, women make up just 18% of computer science (CS) degrees, down from 37% thirty years ago. To understand why, we’re commissioning research to identify the primary drivers that motivate young women and underrepresented minorities to pursue computer science. Our research efforts help us identify strategies to improve perceptions of CS and broaden learning opportunities for all students.
