Description10.1% of bachelor’s degrees and 1.7% of PhDs in computer science go to Latinos in the United States. Latinos are underrepresented in the computer science field and many students who start with an interest in computer science drop out due discrimination, bias in science and technology, and lack of community. This panel, with professionals and graduate students from all across the academic realm, will present students with a representation of Latinos in the field of computer science. This Spanish-language panel will provide students the opportunity to learn how to prepare for different academic pathways.
