The lack of diversity in Computer Science can create a toxic culture and contribute to higher turnover rates and low rates of participation by underrepresented groups (URGs). One common way to broaden participation is to promote initiatives that support role models. This paper posits that a better understanding of the influence of role models requires an intersectional perspective that helps to address issues of diversity and inequality experienced by multiple software practitioners, particularly those from URGs. We believe that role models can also contribute to professional identity construction and argue that every member of our community can be perceived as a role model by others since the value of role models is their ability to demonstrate diversity and encourage desired behaviors.
