Although computer science has become foundational to every industry and field of study, representation and participation in computer science is still far from balanced.
Today we’re helping to launch a video campaign to change the face of computer science. Please help us spread this message as broadly as possible to students, by forwarding this email or on social media.
Only 3% of Black students learn computer science in high school or university. Please watch and share this video broadly. Inspire or encourage a student to try computer science, and let them know they belong. Together we can change the face of computer science.
The organizations partnering to launch this video are nonprofits led by people of color, all of whom have spent years on broadening participation and access, and we are delighted to be supporting their work.
