Commissioning research to get to the root of the problem
To change the face of the tech industry, we need more women and minorities studying computer science. But today, women make up just 18% of computer science (CS) degrees, down from 37% twenty years ago. To understand why, we commissioned a study to identify the primary drivers that motivate young women to pursue computer science. Following this research, we’re crafting strategies to change perception of CS and make it more accessible to all students.
