Diversity Gaps in Computer Science: Exploring the Underrepresentation of Girls, Blacks and Hispanics
The Diversity Gaps in Computer Science: Exploring the Underrepresentation of Girls, Blacks, and Hispanics report contains the needed focus on women, Blacks, and Hispanics — three groups that are underrepresented in computer science studies and the computing workforce. The report raises awareness about the structural and social barriers for the target groups in computer science, based upon a holistic assessment — surveying students, parents, teachers, principals, and superintendents.
This report provides excellent recommendations for parents and educators to increase the engagement of women, Blacks, and Hispanics in computer science. It further highlights recommendations for organizations to provide content for mobile devices that encourages the target groups to consider computer science. I strongly encourage you to read the report to understand the computer science education landscape for girls, Blacks, and Hispanics.
