Computing is a field that’s dominated by particular demographics. It’s also a field that is shaping the future of …​ well, everything.

This talk will take a critical look at the tech talent pipeline (a popular metaphor for the gender imbalance in tech), the current picture, and actions we can take that might change the status quo. We all know there are no silver bullets, but we might be able to make some incremental changes which shift things in the right direction.
