a workshop delivered at CRA's Conference at Snowbird
July 11, 10:30 am - noon
| Without an IT
workforce that is large enough to meet both the public
and private sectors' growing demand, and that is adept at using and
producing information technologies, the United States risks losing the
scientific, economic, and human resource advantages it now enjoys.
In this respect, the underrepresentation of women and minorities in
computer science and engineering (CS&E) is a serious national problem.
Efforts to address this underrepresentation have been ongoing for a
number of years. This session will focus on current best practices for
successfully recruiting and retaining faculty, students and industrial
employees in CS&E, as well as on future research efforts in this area.
