GEARS: Women, Computing, and Technology

October 6, 2015 - 4:15pm to 5:45pm

Women, Computing, and Technology

The Graduate Division is hosting a series of seminars focused on women pursuing academic and non-academic careers in computing and related technological fields.  Women face challenges in these fields as minorities, and organizations like the Anita Borg Institute help build communities and provide support to overcome these challenges.  Speakers will share their knowledge and experiences, with a special emphasis on graduate students, and they will discuss how communities can form on campus to provide local support and resources for UC Merced students.  All members of the campus community are welcome to attend, including and especially those interested in helping to organize a group on campus.

Ann Kovalchick (Associate Vice Chancellor of Information Technology)
