What: a workshop exploring the gender gap in tech, science and math
When: 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, 2012
Where: HacDC (location info)
In 2005, 22% of computer science graduates were women. This is down from 37% in 1985. Have you ever wondered why more women aren’t working in fields of math, science and technology (or going to hackerspaces?) Join The Hacktory to learn more about the research on this problem and hear from others about personal experiences. We have a hands-on activity that will show how this problem persists, and identifies practical solutions each of us can use to combat it.
This event is free and open to participants of all identities, gender- and otherwise. To help us know how many participants to expect, we ask you to RSVP at the meetup event page.
