The Code To Change was at Grace Hopper Celebration 2016!

We are so proud to share that we were part on an amazing panel on #WomeninTech Innovations: Programming, Technology and Community, organized by The Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology on October 21st 2016.

The panel focused on how organizations and Women in tech communities, K12, immersive coding programs and tech investments are addressing the digital skills gap and gender digital divide. Iffat Gill spoke about how coding boot-camps and mentoring programs are changing lives of women. The panel featured stories from communities like Women Techmakers, ChickTech, The Code To Change and Pipeline Angel investors, and how they are encouraging girls and women to enter, stay and advance in tech roles and career paths .

Our advisory board member Karin Hilton (eBay Classifieds Group) was invited for a talk on the importance of career planning for women in technology.

The Code To Change is an implementing partner of Anita Borg Institute in Amsterdam for their ABI.Amsterdam program. Check out our events at our Amsterdam Women in Technology meet-up platform!
