Diverse-IT: Examining the Sex of Information Technology

Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 4:30
Location : Haldeman Center, Room 041


diverse-itJoin us for an exciting panel exploring the role of gender in the development and use of information technologies, and the implications for ensuring vibrancy in the fields of computer science and engineering. Sponsored by The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) in collaboration with the Women and Gender Studies Program, the Women in Science Program (WISP), the Computer Science Department, and the Thayer School of Engineering.

According to the 2010 report "Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics" by the American Association of University Women, girls and boys take math and science courses in roughly equal numbers in elementary, middle and high school, and "about as many girls as boys leave high school prepared to pursue science and engineering majors in college." However, though more women than men now enroll in college, "by graduation, men outnumber women in nearly every science and engineering field, and in some, such as physics, engineering, and computer science, the difference is dramatic, with women earning only 20 percent of bachelor's degrees."

Though such statistics are distressing, this panel seeks to confront the low numbers of women in information technology fields in two ways: first by examining the "sex of information technology" and specific ways to address problems in training, and second by celebrating successful women in IT and learning from their personal experiences.


Denise Anthony - Research Director of the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society and Associate Professor of Sociology

Denise Anthony, Associate Professor and former Chair (2007–11) of the Sociology Department, is Research Director of Dartmouth's Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS). She studies the use and implications of information technology in health care, including compliance with HIPAA, and the privacy and security of protected health information in health care delivery. Her multi-disciplinary research has been published in journals in sociology as well as in health policy and computer science. She has received grants from the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT SHARP program, among others.

Margaret Burnett is a Professor of Computer Science at Oregon State University. Her research focuses on human issues of programming languages and environments, especially when the programming is done by males and females not trained as professional programmers. She has been investigating gender differences in the context of problem-solving software for several years, considering populations ranging from spreadsheet users to professional programmers. She is also Co-Chair of the National Center for Women in Information Technology (NCWIT)'s Academic Alliance, and co-led the creation of "REU-in-a-BOX", an NCWIT national resource on how to do research experiences for undergraduates.

Aarathi Prasad is a third year graduate student in the Computer Science department at Dartmouth College. She got her Masters in Computer Science at Dartmouth College and is currently pursuing a PhD, focusing on the security and privacy of mobile health devices. She hails from Thiruvananthapuram, a city in the southern part of India. It was in high school that she realized her calling to be a computer scientist. Computer Science has given her the liberty to work on some very interesting projects, and enabled her dream of designing cool technologies that will shape the future!

Shloka Kini is an undergraduate Computer Science major at Dartmouth College, class of '13, from Schererville, Indiana. As a WISP intern her freshman year, she participated in an animation research project and has really come to love Computer Science's interdisciplinary vantage point. Last year, she became very interested in research about Women in Computer Science after a cross-cultural conference at Dartmouth, which led her to do research with a professor in Kuwait during an internship through the Dartmouth-AUK exchange program.
