“I've been passionate my whole life about getting more women into technology careers. After 40 years as an educator, here is my hypothesis: If we make learning and work environments interesting and supportive, if we build confidence and community among women, and if we demystify success, women will come, thrive and stay. At Harvey Mudd College, where I’ve served as president since 2006, we’ve been applying this theory and seeing results. Over a five-year period, we went from averaging 10 percent female CS majors to 40 percent; this year we are on track to graduate 45 percent women CS majors."
