Computer programming is one of the most lucrative fields with web development, app development and software development leading the pack in Silicon Valley's hottest startups.
However, data shows us that people of color and women face incredible obstacles in computer science and the tech field in general. In this presentation I show some diversity in tech statistics, which is a call to arms for all educators! We must ensure that all of our students feel confident in computer science so that they can claim these high paying jobs of the future.
Computer science education is a civil rights issue and it is up to us as educators to empower our students to succeed!
