ABSTRACT
The growth of computing and STEM-related jobs continues, but the diversity of those inhabiting those jobs has not. Diversity in the workforce can be measured in many ways, including gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and persons with disabilities (physical, learning, psychological). The guest editors of this special issue discuss the articles under focus, which touch on these different types of diversity and the unique challenges that exist in broadening the pipeline for that spectrum of the population.
