2018 Tapia Conference

Increasing Diversity in Computing: Sharing of Good Practices

Thursday, September 20, 2018 — 2:00PM - 3:30PM

This panel will provide an opportunity for representatives from the NSF-funded Broadening Participation in Computing Alliances and other organizations to share their good practices about increasing diversity in computing. The NSF BPC Alliances were established between 2006 and 2009 to increase the number and diversity of college graduates in the computing and computationally-intensive disciplines. The Alliances are national and regional collaborations of academic institutions, educators, professional societies, community organizations, and industry partners. The panel will begin with an introduction to the following NSF BPC Alliances and other organizations: AccessComputing, CAHSI, CMD-IT, CRA-W, ECEP, IAAMCS, NCWIT, and STARS. The panelists will share information about their organization and how their programs have broadened participation in computing via a world cafe setting. The session will include sufficient time, at least one hour, for questions and discussions.
