Diversity: A Brief History

Like other STEM fields of study, computer science has historically been male-dominated. To redress this male-female disparity, in (2000), the department formed the Focus on Women in Computer Science (FoWCS) Committee, a working group tasked with increasing the participation of women in computer science at UBC.
