Additional Activity Info: 
We want to demonstrate, to current and prospective undergraduate CS students, the diversity of the field by ensuring out colloquium speakers reflect this diversity. We will do this by inviting more women and underrepresented minorities as speakers in our weekly department colloquium. Our goal is at least one speaker per term to start. We will use existing department and college funds to attract speakers.
Progress On Activity: 
We have invited more women speakers this year, although we still do have a majority of male speakers.
Lessons Learned: 
One recent speaker was invited based on a conversation one of my colleagues had with her at Grace Hopper. We should try to do this more often.
