In this paper we survey the literature to identify the issues and challenges of broadening participation in computer science, and provide some suggestions to address these challenges. Our attention focuses on redefining the way we approach computing education so that we can successfully entice students to computing that have not traditionally participated thereby promoting diversity and increasing the total numbers of computing professionals.
For over 20 years, my main goal has been to encourage greater access, interest, participation, and leadership in quantitative science, particularly among women and minorities. This effort involves contributions to: research, teaching, leadership and service, all aimed at promoting psychological science, teaching, health, and inclusion.
Sample titles of slides in this presentation are evaluation of goal 1, high visibility, qualitative assessment, climate survey findings, predicting career satisfaction, evaluation of goal 2, and increasing women hires.
