Lecture: Giving Women the Access Code

Maria Klawe

When:
Thursday, September 13, 2012
Where:
Frick Center, Founders Lounge
Time:
7:00 PM
Description:

A mathematician and computer scientist, Maria Klawe became president of Harvey Mudd College in 2006. She was dismayed to find that the percentage of female computer science graduates at her college had collapsed into the single digits. She turned that around, dramatically—in 2012, about 40 percent of Harvey Mudd’s computer science degrees went to women. Her story sheds light on a field that remains stubbornly male-dominated throughout the United States. Admission $10; available at the door or online at www.elmhurst.edu/tix. Free for Elmhurst College students, faculty, staff and alumni.
