Pantic, Katarina; Clarke-Midura, Jody – Computer Science Education, 2023
Background and Context: Despite over 30 years of research on broadening participation, women are still underrepresented in Computer Science (CS) education. While enrolment in CS majors has increased, women earn only 18% of the CS baccalaureate degrees in the US. Objective: Most research focuses on why women leave CS. This study explores factors…
