Women in CS panel

Women in CS panel

Behnaz Hassanshahi, Cristina Cifuentes

24 August 2020

While women were among the first programmers in the 20th century, and contributed substantially to the industry, over the years both the CS industry and CS academia got dominated by men. In this social hour, we explore the opportunities and challenges women encounter in Computer Science through a panel discussion. Our panelists are women who have leading roles in industry, academia, and industrial research. By sharing stories via Q&A, we look forward to inspiring younger women to fulfill their highest potentials, understand how women can make it to senior positions, and enjoy their career.
