Let’s Celebrate Women in Tech
This event is going to center around women in tech. Let’s open the discussion on the challenges facing women in technology and share great success stories!
Hear from inspiring speakers, network and make powerful connections to build personal and professional growth. It’s essential that women are not discouraged from pursuing a career in the tech field, but stick to their interests and goals and have fun with technology.
4Geeks is a coding bootcamp that started in 2015, since then we have been trying to help reduce the gender gap that the tech industry has, one big accomplishment was that last year one of our cohorts in Miami was 71% female! We are committed to trying to beat this number and have a greater female representation in the tech industry.
Not only for women, but for all, the tech industry is very fast-moving. The only constant is change itself. At 4Geeks Academy we are determined to make women part of this change. Enrolling in a coding bootcamp and being prepared to learn something new is part of adapting to innovative technologies and trends.
