The Irish Network for Gender Equality in Computing (INGENIC) held its 2nd meeting in the UCD on Thursday 6th September. The meeting was chaired by Dr Catherine Mooney, School of Computer Science. We were delighted to have 27 attendees representing 17 Irish third level institutions.
Julie Hogan (Chair WITS) led a discussion on how INGENIC and WITS can work together. David Fisher (Fulbright U.S. Scholar – Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology) gave a talk on his research on the Gender Gap in Computer Science leading to an interesting discussion on the similarities and difference between the US and the Irish approach to the Gender Gap. Other topics discussed included the introduction of Computer Science onto the Leaving Cert and Athena Swan.
