Women in Computer Science - A Panel of High School, Higher Education and Career Trailblazers (Panel)

Representing the full continuum of CS from high school to career, panelists will share about the spark that led them to pursue CS and outline real actions that CS advocates and educators can take to ensure that more women have the opportunity to make waves in CS and computing.
