To address the issue of the rarity of females and students of color in computer science, LAUSD and UCLA created the Computer Science Equity Alliance, a collaboration aimed to support computer science teaching and learning in LAUSD. CSEA provides outreach support and faculty assistance for young women. As a result, the number of schools offering APCS and numbers of high school students enrolled in APCS has significantly increased. Importantly, the representation of African Americans, Latinos, and females has increased since the beginning of the Computer Science Equity Alliance.
The Computer Science Teachers Association is a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of computer science and other computing disciplines. CSTA provides opportunities for K-12 teachers and students to better understand the computing disciplines and to more successfully prepare themselves to teach and learn. This association is dedicated to improving the equity of the work done in the organization. This association is achieving this through creating opportunities for underrepresented groups, such as girls, to make computer science education more equitable.

The Dot Diva / New Image for Computing (NIC) initiative is sponsored by WGBH. Dot Diva's mission is to create an exciting and positive image of computing for high school girls. Their nationwide survey revealed that not only do the majority of girls think of computing as "boring" and "hard," but they believe it fails to deliver two crucial benefits: "working with others" and "making a difference in other people's lives." Their ultimate goal is to transform this negative perception.
