Girls of Color & Culturally Responsive Approaches to Computing
This workshop will provide an overview of black girls in STEM (with an emphasis on technology), synthesize effective program strategies for targeting this population, critique what is missing, present a new theoretical framework that considers intersectionality and black girls in STEM, as well as the implications of using framework in terms of research, programs, and policy focused on digital equity. Presented by an interdisciplinary coalition of scholar activists with expertise in education, program implementation, social psychology, and assessment, this interactive panel will challenge audience members to think more broadly and comprehensively about black girls and young women in technology.
