We are a coding school for all women and non binary people.
For every paying student on our courses, we teach digital skills to a woman in the slums of India. We were founded with the intention of creating a more diverse technology industry. The gender disparity effects the products and services that are produced and who they are targeted at, and we need a workforce that is more representative of the people it wants to serve, or should be serving. We are here to kick off people’s journeys to becoming a software engineer; to upskill people in their current role; to create a more flexible career for a parent; to give a woman a stronger voice in her tech company; to give a potential or current founder the skills to build or overlook the building of their site; to give someone the confidence to question the industry and what it stands for; to have more technical women and non binary people at the table.
