Description: Are girls in your high school missing from your Computer Science program? High school and college Computer Science programs traditionally have fewer girls than boys, which translates into fewer women pursuing careers in computer science. This webinar will share reasons why girls might be avoiding computer science, easy ways you can encourage girls to join or stay in your computer science program, and reasons why diversity is important in your computer science classroom and in the workplace.
