Portrait of a Computer Scientist

I saw this blog post by a friend from grad school so I thought I would share.

My favorite part is this:

I have to add, even if you think or know you’ve been invited to an event, either to give a talk, chair a conference session, organize a workshop, sit on a thesis committee, “just” because you’re a woman and the organizers want balance, don’t let it phase you. You’ve been given this opportunity. Go ahead, make the most of it and show them they were wrong to think of you under the header “woman” before they thought of you as an expert.

Enjoy!
