Abstract

The lack of diversity in computer science has far-reaching consequences, including unfilled jobs, lower product quality, and continuing structural barriers to underrepresented students. In this talk, I draw on research in sociology, psychology and education to hypothesize why females in the United States do not pursue computer science, what obstacles those who do pursue it face, and what students and faculty can do to recruit and retain females in computer science.
