Code/Art founder, Amy Renshaw, Speaks on ‘Women in CS’ Panel

Jul 24, 2018 | All News, Press Release

MIAMI—Amy Renshaw (Code/Art Co-founder and President), Ruth Suarez (SCIS Academic Advisor), Cristy Charters (SCIS Instructor), Alejandra Massuh (WICS Student Organization President), and Darlene Holland (Chemistry and Coding Educator) acted as panelists during yesterday’s Women in CS Panel event at Florida International University. Their contribution was invaluable.

The Girls Who Code national administration gives a lot of importance to this event because very few programs expose the participants to an event like the Women in CS Panel event held at FIU’s School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS), where 60 participants hosted at three different institutions meet at a single location to network and discuss current issues on their career interests.

The discussion centered around workplace changes necessary to better serve women in CS, women’s role in the family and society, different sub-fields and types of positions in CS/IT, and leveraging social media to alleviate challenges.
