Lien Diaz

Lien Diaz is the Director of Educational Innovation and Leadership of the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech. Her role includes building teaching and leadership capacity to expand access to computing education across the state of Georgia and around the nation. Her work elevates the importance of increasing engagement with female students, economically disadvantaged students, and students of color into rigorous high school computing courses and streamlining opportunities into post-secondary computing, STEM, and Tech jobs. In its first year, the Constellations Center has doubled the number of schools in Atlanta Public Schools offering AP CS courses and more than tripled the number of students enrolled in them. Prior to her appointment at the Constellations Center, she spent 11 years at College Board and was a co-PI for Using Computational Thinking to Model a New Course and the Collaborative Research – Broadening Participation in CS: AP CS Principles Phase II projects, both funded by the National Science Foundation. She is one of the primary architects of the AP Computer Science Principles course and a leading national expert in educational diversity, inclusion, and equity.
