One Size Won’t Fit All: The Unique Challenges of Diversity in Computing - Tuesday, October 29, 2019 @ Noon MT

Today, almost half of all STEM jobs are in computing. And growth in computing jobs should outpace growth in other STEM sectors over the next decade. This is a unique opportunity to boost the presence of women in STEM. Females now hold only about 1 in 4 jobs in the computing sector – and that proportion actually declined since the mid-1980s. The voices of today’s high school students can provide deep insights for tailoring strategies that encourage a new generation of girls to see computing careers as a perfect fit.

Join the Student Research Foundation (SRF) as it shares some of its latest research on gender and STEM. Drawing on survey responses of students in high school classrooms across the nation, SRF shares insights about the unique differences between STEM aspirants interested in computing vs. non-computing fields, and the steps adults can take in-school, out-of-school, and at-home to attract more girls to computing fields.
