They seem simple, and have been tried in other contexts, should be considered in tech as well in conjunction with others means.

Aaron Clauset of the University of Colorado, Boulder (and Haverford College class of 2001) just published an article suggesting evidence of bias in faculty hiring, especially in computer science and especially with women.

So I saw this recent article about not teaching all women to code. Or more accurately, the title is provocative. As I read the piece, there are some ideas I agree with, like we should never coerce students to learn coding or anything for that matter. But I do believe we should expose them to computational thinking, and that will include algorithms, data representations .. in other words, programming.
I am sensing that the issue is more with the targeted accommodations for women. Studies indicate that is where the issue is. Still, the dream should be less accommodation and more universal design of education that includes everyone. In this way, women, like everyone else, can make a more informed choice about career and interest.
But I am considering a (sarcastic) response about not teaching men cooking, or some other provocative title. Stay tuned.
