“We are Computer Science” is an association initiated by students and for students to serve as a support network for encouraging female and underrepresented minority students to pursue and to continue their studies in Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and UniBas.
The goal of “We are Computer Science” is to promote an unbiased and fair future for females and underrepresented minorities in computer science and technology. To achieve this goal, we will invite renowned diverse speakers from universities, research institutes, and the private sector to offer insight into and discuss how they face diversity and inclusivity-related challenges in their respective communities.
This will be complemented by social networking, regular meetings, and book reading clubs for members of the “We are Computer Science” association. We will also organize workshops and coaching sessions for the association members to equip them with the knowledge and skills to feel more confident in the currently male-dominated and non-diverse field of Computer Science. Finally, we seek to create a sense of community through empowerment, knowledge, and active engagement and collaboration.
