In honor of Women’s History Month, Berkeley Lab’s Diversity and Inclusion Office and Computing Sciences Area will be screening a film called “CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap” on Monday, March 28th @ 12:00 p.m. in the B50 auditorium. “CODE documentary exposes the dearth of female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide. The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed. CODE asks: what would society gain from having more women and people of color code, and how do we get there?” The film features current programmers in the field, with a brief history of the role of women within computing sciences in the U.S.
