Brown University's Department of Computer Science (Brown CS) has made it our mission to create and sustain a diverse and inclusive environment in which all students, faculty, and staff can thrive. Few things are more meaningful than to see our female-identifying students become known leaders and role models in the field, and Brown CS undergraduate Tiffany Chen has just received significant recognition: she's been named a Women Techmakers Scholar. The award is part of Google's Women Techmakers Scholars Program, which aims at furthering Anita Borg’s vision of creating gender equality in the field of computer science.
Last year, Brown CS student Julia Wu was a recipient of the scholarship (formerly known as the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship), and Sharon Lo and Danaë Metaxa-Kakavouli were 2015 recipients. Other students winning Google scholarships over the past two years include Daniel Milstein, Eli White, and Luis Aguirre.
GWT Scholars receive recognition and support for their education as they become part of the next generation of diverse tech leaders. This includes a visit to Google's Scholars Retreat in Mountain View, California, filled with tech talks, networking opportunities, developmental activities and sessions, and social activities with the other Scholars.
