Diversity and Information Technology
We discuss the importance of diversity in the US information technology workforce. With high-tech jobs being sent overseas, people in the IT industry are pushing for more diversity in IT careers and related majors in US colleges. Joining us will be some of the organizers of a movement to encourage women and minorities to consider IT as a career.
Guests:
Dr. Teresa Dahlberg - Associate Professor of Computer Science, UNC Charlotte
Dr. Janice Cuny - Program Director for the National Science Foundation's Broadening Participation in Computing Program
Dr. Joan Lorden - Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, UNC Charlotte
