A case study on a systemic approach to addressing tech diversity issues. Join us as we learn more about Duke University’s new Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) professional development program which welcomed 144 fellows to its inaugural cohort. The fellows represent 67 different organizations across four countries, and include public school officials, high school teachers and even museum employees in addition to graduate students and university IT staff. The goal is to provide expert training in identity-inclusive topics to improve computing diversity, equity and inclusion, and will cover ways of understanding race and gender, white supremacy, intersectionality and various forms of oppression, as well as how that knowledge can improve computer science in practice.
