2018 NCWIT Summit - “Reaching Rural and Remote Areas Bit by Bit! How to Connect Rural Populations With Resources and Opportunities for Computing Education” Workshop by Shalini Kesar

Conference Year 
2018

Learn how to engage rural areas in your state and region and reach underrepresented populations in tech. Dr. Shalini Kesar of Southern Utah University has led one of the largest NCWIT Award for AiC Affiliates for the past 5 years, recognizing 93 award recipients in 2017 – more than any other Affiliate in the nation! Although Southern Utah is not seen as a tech hub, Dr. Kesar has found success by engaging all parts of their community, including educators, parents, local businesses, clubs, and after-school activities in an effort to promote more women in tech.
