Evidence suggests that cycles of booming and dropping enrollment play a large part in declining female participation in CS and we’re just starting a new boom. This panel will present an overview of this history, discuss possible impacts of this boom on gender diversity in CS and explore the role that academia, industry, and outreach efforts play in ensuring that history does not repeat itself.
