Women make up half the U.S. college-educated workforce, yet only 25% of computing professionals.* At this meetup, we'll discuss various opportunities for girls that aim to close this gender gap. Panelists representing a range of organizations will share opportunities for girls in computing, from in-school strategies to informal enrichment and college pathways.

Panelists include:

Andrea Chaves, Computer Science Teacher, The Young Women’s Leadership School, Astoria

Mutale Nkonde, K12 Education Lead, Black Girls Code

Judith Spitz, Founding Program Director: Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York (WiTNY) at Cornell Tech

Chrissy Ziccarelli, Deputy Director of Instruction, Girls Who Code

Moderator: Leigh Ann DeLyser, Director of Education and Research, CSNYC
