Why?

860000
Job Offers
30%
Women in IT
9%
Female App Developers

Despite the high unemployment rates  job offers in IT augment rapidly, but there is no talent to sufficiently fill the shortage (900.000 vacancies by 2020 in Europe).

Undoubtedly digital literacy is a worldwide priority. Especially when it comes to women, they constitute only 30% of IT employees in Europe and only 9% of app developers are female.

On the other side studies suggest that gender diversity in companies leads to better decision making, enhanced creativity and performance.

Our mission

Code it Like a Girl organizes workshops that familiarize women with coding, in order for them to obtain valuable technological skills and bridge the gender gap in the IT industry.

Our vision

We envision a world where women, confident in their IT skills, will innovate and channel their creativity to ameliorate the world. They will work and excel at technological professions reducing in this way the industry’s gender gap.

 

Code it Like a Girl intends to become a hub where women will come together, share ideas and use their technological skills for innovative problem-solving. Our challenge is to expand in each and every Greek city and become the organization with the most intense impact on women all over Greece.
