Blum Lecture Focuses on Women in Computer Science

Friday, December 5, at 4 p.m.

Welles-Brown Room, Rush Rhees Library
The University of Rochester's River Campus

General Information
Internationally renowned mathematician and computer scientist Lenore Blum will discuss "Transforming the Culture of Computing: The Carnegie Mellon Experience."

Blum will review how, in the 1990s, Carnegie Mellon University bucked the trend of declining numbers of women in computer science. She will discuss program changes that increased the participation of women in information technology at the graduate level and beyond at the university, and the ideas and implications for other venues.

The event is part of the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women's Studies Speaker Series on Women in Science and Engineering. Co-sponsored by the Warner School, her talk is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.
