On Wedneday, December 7, NEOWIT & AkronWiT will screen CODE: Debugging The Gender Gap. The film, which raised more than $86,000 via Indigogo to produce, explores both the explicit and implicit reasons behind the gender diversity gap in the tech industry. Featuring key policymakers, coders and educators from institutions and organisations like Pinterest, GitHub, ETSY and Black Girls Code, the film investigates the decline in female programmers since the 1980s and talks about the resounding effects of not addressing the 'bugs' that are continuing to discourage women from entering and remaining in the industry.
Thank yous go to our friends at AkronWIT for providing food and drinks for this event!
