CS Girls Rock – Workshop in Computer Science for Young Women

The CEMC Workshop in Computer Science for Young Women exists to encourage young women, and people of other under-represented genders,* who are considering computer science as a career for the first time. It is a unique opportunity designed to ignite enthusiasm for computer science in interested students from across Canada who have had little or no previous exposure to computer science. Attendees learn that computer science is about much more than using and programming computers.

Who is selected?

Applicants will be notified about acceptance in late March.

*Why This Audience?

Computer science is a powerful tool, and diversity among computer scientists increases the potential for positive impact. One of the initiatives of the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing is to encourage better gender diversity in the field of computer science. See for recent statistics on gender diversity in computer science. Following the lead of University of Waterloo, CEMC recognizes those whose gender identity is neither male nor female, including gender-fluid, non-binary, agender and more. oSTEM indicates that these gender identities are under-represented in STEM fields.
