Cohort: 2012-2013

Dr. Ann W. Drobnis is the Director of the Computing Community Consortium at the Computing Research Association where she works on future visioning. Previously, she was as Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow at the National Science Foundation working on education and workforce development issues for the CISE Directorate.  Ann spent most of her time working on the CS10K Project, whose goal is to get academically rigorous computer science courses into 10,000 high schools by 2016.  This is a much-needed effort to create the research and workforce pipeline that the computer science field so desperately needs.  Prior to her time at NSF, she taught high school computer science and math at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology.  She has a passion for broadening participation in computing, as her doctoral research was focused on ways to bring more females into the field.
