CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap

CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap

Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be over one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this international crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech.
