Women in Computing at Rochester continues positive growth trend

For many decades, the diversity in computer science nationally has been disproportionately lower than in other science disciplines.  In an effort to change that at Rochester, many steps have been taken to help build a better community for women and underrepresented minorities in the Department of Computer Science at Rochester.

The University recently featured an article about our "code like a girl" campus trend in the NewsCenter publication.  The article featured our impact on Women in Computing, however BRAID is also about all diversity in Computer Science.  We continue to make changes that will reverse these national trends.  Here are some additional resources for diversity information at Rochester:

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)

Women in Computing at Rochester (URWiC)

For more information about the BRAID initiative and our implementation of it at Rochester, please contact Marty Guenther. (marty@cs.rochester.edu)
