With 1.4 million open jobs in computing by 2018 and only 29 percent of those expected to be filled by women, there has been much research and investigation into how to increase the pipeline. In this session from the 2013 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit, top researchers and experts who are making strides in this critical area discuss the challenges and the research collaborations with Microsoft Research that are making a difference in growing more women in computing.

Participants in this session of the 2013 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit are encouraged to become active in the movement to facilitate greater diversity among computer scientists.
