We are incredibly proud of our Code First Girls community and the mix of learning backgrounds, ethnicities, and tech experience that our members represent.
Diversity is critical to ensure we have a range of skills, ideas and perspectives in tech. Our community of amazing women will give you access to a range of learning backgrounds, cultures, and tech level experience. Our members love to have access to job roles and opportunities with our partners.
Our community members are highly engaged and ready to hear from a range of companies and organisations about tech. From career pathways, to how tech is used in business, tech culture, interviews and coaching tips, and more. Engage our community and build your women in tech network.
& TRAIN WOMEN
We have a range of women in our community, from uni grads, to early careers, mums, tech returners, and women wanting to upskill. Our mixture of courses can be used to upskill employees internally or be shared in the wider community to open the door for more women wanting a career in tech.
Since 2015 we’ve connected 50+ companies with our community of over 30,000 talented women to change the face of tech.
We have a range of packages to help build your brand profile with our community and also give more women the chance to learn how to code.
It is an exciting year with so many partners across a variety of industries on board for 2021 (with more to come!).
Our community have told us, through our annual survey, their interest in different areas of tech and how keen they are to have access to careers at our partner companies.
Through our MOOCs, Classes, and Nanodegree, we are able to work with companies to attract more women into tech and showcase exciting career pathways .
Together, with our partners, we are committed to transforming organisations and championing women in technology.
