Session Title: Science and stories: Inspiring the next generation of technologists


Google conducted a study in 2014 that showed that ‘career perception’ is the second most important factor that influences girls to study CS (the first is encouragement-- and we'll talk about that too!). You can’t be what you can’t see: women and minorities are underrepresented on screen, and television often does not portray engineers in a positive light. In the first part of our presentation we'll dive into the 2014 research findings and discuss the top drivers that influence high school-age girls to study CS. In the second half of the presentation we'll talk about the work Google is doing with Hollywood studios and writers to add positive CS story lines and diverse CS role models into their content.

HostCo Directions for Attendees
The Google-Diversity session is going to be held in building #TC 6 - first building on the right hand side as you enter the parking lot. There is a table set up right outside the building. Look for the NewCo t-shirts!

  • Company Description Larry Page, our co-founder and CEO, once described the “perfect search engine” as something that “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want.” Since he spoke those words Google has grown to offer products beyond search, but the spirit of what he said remains. With all our technologies—from search to Chrome to Gmail—our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to find the information you need and get the things you need to do done.
