I was invited to be a panelist for a workshop in the Primera Vista program, and here is the invitation.
Hello again, I recently reached out the past week asking if anyone wanted to be a panelist for a workshop I was hosting for students in my program, Primera Vista.
I am asking if anyone would be willing to hold a workshop specifically for Diversity in Tech and its topics.
As a quick overview, one of my friends and I created the Primera Vista program to bridge underrepresented students to the world of tech.
The workshop is only for an hour.
Here’s a rough outline of what I covered:
- introduction to myself
- why I decided to study CS
- my journey in CS education
- my current career and future aspirations
Throughout the discussion, I’ll touch on critical struggles, how I overcame them, accomplishments I’m proud of, and advice I wish I had gotten.
Target Audience: first-generation minority high school students
Goal: help the audience understand what it’s like to work in tech after studying computer science as an underrepresented minority (Latina) software engineer
