“Code: Debugging the Gender Gap” Film Screening + Panel Discussion

January 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

“Everyone who cares about the rights of girls and women should see this movie. It’s an extraordinary exploration of the opportunities and challenges for women and the tech industry.”
Maria Klawe
  President, Harvey Mudd College

CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap explores why more women and minorities do not pursue careers in computer science despite high demand and lucrative job opportunities. The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how a critical gender gap can be closed.
Join us for a special screening at University of Miami’s Cosford Cinema followed by a discussion with industry and academic leaders.
