Coalition to Diversify Computing
The Coalition to Diversify Computing seeks to address the shortage of a highly trained workforce of scientists and engineers capable of understanding and implementing computing resources. The Coalition develops a diverse community of professionals that can effectively meet the computing demands of an evolving society, and targets students and faculty with the expressed intent of increasing the number of minorities successfully transitioning into computing-based careers in academia, federal laborities and industry. The diverse membership of CDC from academia, industry and federal laboratories enables a variety of different perspectives and approaches to be used in achieving the above stated goals. CDC also partners with a number of organizations with similar missions to leverage resources to optimize outcomes.
