Poor image of computing:
Schools: accessible and gender neutral, but often boring and equated with office skills
Work: negative images such as nerdy, aggressive, dull
Failure to communicate:
What computer science is and why it is important
Computing can be exciting, rewarding, challenging; can lead to social careers; accommodates career breaks, flexible working
The variety of clearly differentiated computing careers
All people will be comfortable and feel able to ask questions or comment at any time. People will feel that the channel is a sociable and friendly place.
