"We're trying to make the tech community look like America."

As I am sitting in my empty classroom, waiting for the first day of school and new students, this article struck me as integral to consider before my students arrive.

 

I am asking myself these questions:

Do my CS students look like America? 

What have I done to encourage students who may not feel like CS is "meant" for them or who do not fit the cultural stereotype of a programmer o enroll in my CS courses?

 

I encourage you to ask yourself the same question and to share it here to inspire all of us by your steps towards inclusivity.
