CUNY's Women in Technology Initiative...
We all hope that on some rare occasion we will be fortunate enough to work on something more meaningful, more impactful, than the day-to-day routine aspects of our jobs. This past January I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to co-teach a pilot course with Professor Zachary Dodds that aimed to tackle the challenge of why there are so few female students in Computer Science, and then set out to do something about it. This effort has now been officially launched as the Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York Initiative.
Please check out the good work the initiative is pursuing at the link above, and check out the video embedded here - you'll not only watch video testimonials from our former students (who represent themselves extremely well, if I may say so), but you'll also catch a fleeting glimpse of yours truly giving a lecture.
It is an honor to be part of this program, and it's the type of thing that I'm grateful that my kids will one day see that I was a part of.
