MEET OUR FACILITATORS
Our workshops are facilitated by a team of female industry experts who volunteer their time to share their knowledge and stories with our students. There is a lack of female role models in the tech industry and there is still strong stereotype bias around women in IT.
"You can't be what you can't see"
We've seen great results where young girls feel empowered and inspired to consider careers in coding after coming along to meet and learn from our facilitators. All facilitators, speakers, and volunteers have an up to date working with children check.
