Encourage students to stick with CS by providing them with role models and mentors in the tech fields.

  • Showing students proof that others have succeeded in the industry helps them to believe they can succeed.
  • Being exposed to a wide variety of careers in CS will help students find their niche and emphasize how applicable CS skills are to the elusive “real world.”
  • Girls are often apprehensive of being the only girl in the room, but interacting with women mentors will make the tech industry seem like less of a “boys’ club.”
