Careers in CS

Key to fostering a student's sense of belonging in CS courses is engaging with role models who are similar (background, culture, gender identity, race/ethnicity, etc.) Below are some profiles of computer scientists from a variety of backgrounds. We encourage you to use them in your courses in a variety of ways.

CSEdWeek has some excellent suggestions on incorporating role models in CS, including easy welcome and closure activities, and an activity to for students to create a poster of a role model. Check out the activities and all the posters at!
