Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) Fellows Program - Cohort 1

December 2020 to June 2021

The Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) Fellows Program is a cohort-based professional development program that helps computing faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and professionals: 1) learn more about social science topics (such as identity, intersectionality, racism, bias, and discrimination) and how these topics impact computing environments (as well as the developed technologies); and 2) develop computing deliverables at their home institutions that leverage these topics to foster more inclusive and equitable cultures. I participated in the first cohort of the 3C Fellows program as a member of a team sponsored by Duke’s DiversifyIT group.
