    CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap

    Wednesday, October 17 at 6:00pm | Admission $5 at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson

    CITY Center for Collaborative Learning’s 3rd Annual Fall Film Screening. Children and teens are welcome, and are invited to join us at The Loft Cinema at 4:30pm before the film to experience coding first hand on Edison robots. The film starts at 6pm, followed by a panel discussion with women in computer science.
    Tickets available online here.

    According to the National Center for Women & Information Technology, only 26% of the computing workforce in the United States are women. Fewer than 5% of those women are women of color. Join CITY Center for Collaborative Learning for our 3rd Annual Fall Film Screening for a screening and panel discussion of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap.

    CODE exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide. The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed. CODE asks: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code and how do we get there?

    Many thanks the STEMAZing Project and the University of Arizona’s Women in Science and Engineering Program and The Loft Cinema for their generous co-sponsorship.

    This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by CITY Center for Collaborative Learning.
