We’re gearing up for a December STEM Salon to release important new data on women and computer science. You’ll also be interested in our Regional Summit and our corporate strategy session on the reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, both of which drew strong corporate support and covered plenty of hot-button issues. Learn more about Career and Technical Education in a webinar. And we’re mulling the good news and bad news about student performance in STEM subjects.
STEM Salon on Dec. 12. You won’t want to miss the release of our new report, Half Empty: As Men Surge Back into Computing, Women Are Left Behind. The report examines trends in the number of computer degrees and certificates going to women, why women and men have responded differently to recent economic forces and, most important, what states can do to get more girls and women into computer science.
Join us for a lively panel discussion with Kimberly Bryant, founder of Black Girls Code; Allyson Knox, director of education policy and programs, Microsoft; Alison Derbenwick Miller, vice president, Oracle Academy; and CTEq CEO Linda Rosen. Please RSVP by Dec. 9 to attend in person for the 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., ET event at CTEq in Washington, D.C. Seating is first-come, first-served. Space is limited. The event will be live-streamed online and available on our website afterwards.
