Jabari, a Ph.D. student in Duke's Interdisciplinary Security, Privacy, and Interaction Research Lab, has contributed significantly to AiiCE's guiding principles and conducted impactful research on race perceptions among undergraduate computing students. Kiara, a current undergraduate student in Computer Science, completed the AiiCE Teaching Assistant Professional Development Course and served as a keynote speaker at the CSTA Annual Conference in 2023. Their collective efforts, spanning from addressing large audiences to participating in conferences, exemplify their commitment to improving systemic inequities in computing education. We are delighted that the Computer Science Department at Duke University has featured their dedication to fostering justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the field of computer science.
