More female students in Computer Science. Who cares?
Panel discussion with renowned scientists about diversity in STEM Studies.
TU Wien, Campus Karlsplatz
1040 Vienna, Karlsplatz 13
Women are neither better nor worse suited to science and technology than their male colleagues. However, they are still underrepresented in STEM studies at many universities, among others at TU Wien. Examples for successful endeavors in significantly and sustainably increasing the number of female students to around 40% are the Carnegie Mellon University and Northeastern University. The intentions of this discussion are to analyze the reasons and to acquire an understanding for the success of these best practice examples. We will discuss key success factors and implementation strategies to increase the number of female students.
The panel discussion takes place on the occasion of the International Workshop on “Innovations in Informatics Education at Universities - International Best Practices”.
