Girls in IT–Infographic and Report from NCWIT

I found an info graphic from NCWIT on Girls in IT to be pretty interesting. I can’t get it to format right in this blog format but you can see it here. I’ve got one snippet of it below.


  It is shocking to me how under represented women are in the Advanced Placement Computer Science program and in undergraduate CS programs.

There is a lot more in the graphic and the accompanying report - Girls in IT: The Facts. I’m also reading the report which “aims to bring together this latest research so that readers can gain a clearer and more coherent picture of 1) the current state of affairs for girls in computing, 2) the key barriers to increasing girls’ participation in these fields, and 3) promising practices for addressing these barriers.”
