Diversity Day by Day: April

Coming Soon

The history of computer science is often presented as almost completely white and male. Here is a more diverse day by day version, It may start sparse but we will fill it in with links to cs4fn articles as we come across diverse events. We will celebrate the contributions of computer scientists whether men, women, LGBTQ+, disabled or not, and of whatever ethnicity, religion or country of birth.
