Description: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Demand for computer scientists is high and continues to grow in the U.S. and globally. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has projected that by 2026, computer science jobs will have grown by 19%. Although many colleges are working hard to produce computer science graduates who can fill those jobs, relatively few of these graduates — 18% — are women, resulting in a workforce that lacks the benefits from gender diversity — critical innovation and growth.
