WE ARE CELEBRATING OUR AMAZING, TALENTED AND DIVERSE COMMUNITY OF WOMEN IN TECH #IWD2021
At Code First Girls we love celebrating the achievements of women in our community and showcasing the amazing talents, skills and experience that each woman has built for herself. With International Women’s Day next week and this whole month dedicated to Women’s History, we are pushing forward with our ambitious task of doubling our community this year, in the hope that we can, in fact, create history for women by increasing the number of women in tech. It is critical that we continue to raise awareness of the gender and diversity challenges in tech and mark a call to action for individuals and organisations to enact change.
It is therefore really fitting that this year’s International Women’s Day theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Not only do we have some amazing examples of women in our CFG community below who have done just that and created great opportunities and careers for themselves (and continue to contribute to the CFG community), we also have 14 companies (and growing!) who are partnering with us in 2021 to offer more opportunities to women wanting to pursue a career in tech. The women below provide inspiration to those thinking about a career in tech, highlighting the array of pathways, roles, and learning opportunities available.
