What we're about
Diminished participation by women relative to men in computer science/IT dates back to the 1980s. To make matters worse, the lack of women can make it more intimidating for women to enter IT. The purpose of this group is to provide a safe and encouraging space where women can learn at their own pace and ask questions without fear of judgement. Our purpose is to increase the number of women in IT/STEM fields through educational courses and encouragement.
The courses offered here focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it - via certifications and building websites. Members of the group can meet regularly to commiserate.
You should join if:
-You are interested in learning new IT skills or entering the IT field
-You are interested in sharpening/enhancing your IT skills
-You are interested in helping/mentoring women in IT/IT leadership
