BPC State Summit Toolkit

Advancing K-16 computing education in a state is a complex and collaborative endeavor. Computing education state summits are an important part of this process and can help to develop and advance a state’s strategy both for expanding computing education access and for broadening participation in computing (BPC). In particular, summits can promote equity and democratize change efforts by giving voice to all stakeholders in a collaborative and action-oriented environment.
This toolkit will help define the purpose, create structure, and plan the logistics for your own summit, and help engage in follow-up efforts post-summit. It also provides practical resources that communicate the importance of BPC efforts and strategies that change leaders can apply to their efforts.
This toolkit was created through a partnership between the Expanding Computing Education Pathways (ECEP) Alliance and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), with both organizations focused on BPC as NSF-funded organizations.  https://www.ncwit.org/resources/organize-broadening-participation-computing-state-summit-toolkit
