Part 1: Dr. Christopher Mruk presents: Authentic Self-Esteem

Did you know that research shows women often have different experiences in computer science than their male classmates? While many computing related classroom and work experiences can be positive and enhance self-esteem, others can be negative and can decrease it, leaving students to feel like they do not belong in their computing major or profession. If this type of “chilly environment,” as it is called, has ever happened to you, join us for a fun workshop that will give you strategies to build authentic self-esteem in a computing environment so you can combat those times of doubt.
