There is a common misconception among women, that computer science is a narrow field that deals only with computer issues. We designed this poste to showcase the impact of computer science to very different fields. We also targeted women interests in helping people and/or doing a creative activity.

We conducted an open survey from October 2011 to July 2012 directed to the D@H volunteers. The primary objective of this survey is benchmarking current D@H volunteers to identify their demographics, preferences, and opinions with respect to our project. The final goal, however, is to obtain data that can inform the recruitment process in accordance with research-based practices for attracting diverse populations to computing and science.

I participated on a CISters initiative to retain and attract college-level women to the Computer Science major and other IT careers. This innitiative included a pilot workshop and contest of educational videos on introductory computer science (CS) topics. Through these activities we enabled freshman student teams to creatively design, role-play, and shoot short videos (5 min. each) that bring down to earth abstract concepts of CS and tie them up with fun and insightful real-life situations.
