The Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences (iAAMCS), a national resource for all African-American computer science students and faculty, launches a new podcast in collaboration with the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), a non-profit that works to increase women’s meaningful participation in computing. Modern Figures Podcast (modernfigurespodcast.com) guest stars Black women in computing who share their stories and perspectives on technical, societal, and personal topics. Geared toward high school and college students, each guest also highlights the interestingly relatable, pivotal moments along their journey in computing.
