Gender and Computing: An Interactive Exploration of Student Experience
Date & Time: 20 Jan, 1.30pm – 5:00pm
Location: Room WG608The experience of being – or preparing to become – a computing professional can be very different for male vs. female individuals. In this interactive special session, we lead participants through a facilitated conversation and exploration of some of the factors accounting for these differences. Using a framework drawn from the theory of gender schemas, implicit association, micro-messaging, privilege, and self-efficacy, we both describe and demonstrate ways in which environment can shape experience. Participants will leave equipped with a set of tools and materials intended to facilitate further conversation at their home institutions.
