The dearth of female and minority computer science engineers is a timely and relevant topic. Understanding the dynamics at work here is a big part of being able to rectify the gender, ethnicity and economic disparities.  This special program will introduce CODE, a documentary film about debugging the gender gap and bridging the digital divide. It will also address the questions:
– Why does the gender gap and digital divide in tech continue to grow?
– What will society gain from having a more diverse group programming the products upon which we so heavily depend?
CODE director Robin Hauser Reynolds, author Vivek Wadhwa and Angel Investor/Ex-Facebook Engineering Director Jocelyn Goldfein will engage in an interactive discussion, and we hope that you will engage them as well.  The CODE documentary film needs your help! This eye-opening documentary explores the reasons behind the gender gap in coding throughout the US. Help support its efforts by donating to its Indiegogo campaign.
IEEE-CNSV Director and IEEE Women in Engineering volunteer Brian Berg will moderate this discussion.
