The time is now. With women representing only ~17% of the tech industry, we are dedicated to moving this stat in the right direction!
Our role is to help more women gain the skills, confidence and tools they need to kick-start, revamp, or reignite their career in tech through our courses and job opportunities.
FROM BEGINNER TO
From beginner to more advanced, we want to make getting into tech for women super accessible and create the next generation of future tech leaders. Explore our Code First Girls courses below.
