We Are a Coding School For All Women
For every paying student, we teach digital skills to a woman in the slums of India.
We are on a mission to empower all women from all walks of life with the skills and confidence to be technical. We aim to give them the tools needed to build our futures.
We are for women
We are for women, those who identify as women and non-binary people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Our differences make us stronger. This has allowed for students to feel they can learn in an open, safe environment, without competition or ego.
Culture is queen
We believe in fostering a learning environment that is informal, open, safe, and without competition and ego. We believe in the power of meaningful relationships, and being a source of knowledge and support for each other. We provide healthy snacks and refreshments to fuel our classes. We have inclusivity and accessibility at the heart of everything we do.
Real world experience
We provide two-week flexible internships for all of our graduates, should they wish to take part.
We believe that when our workforces represent our beautifully diverse society, we will have products and services that are built for everywhere. We believe diversity goes beyond gender to include all demographics, including (although not exclusively) sexuality, age, class, and cultural background.
I’m still trying to get my head around how much coding has changed my life. When I signed up for the course, I knew nothing about code. Now, for the first time in a long time, I am in my element. I now assistant teach here!
We believe everyone should learn how to code! Our mission is to get as many women as possible excited about code and minimise the gender gap and, in turn, diversify the scene.
We have created a safe environment that encourages vulnerability, questions, and supports women on their journeys way past graduation.
In India, having a mixed gender class would hinder our efforts in reaching marginalised women.
No! Far from it. Coding intimidates many due to it being a male dominated industry, and its stereotype of men in hoodies working all nighters fuelled by energy drinks does not help either! We are creating an open, safe environment. We are not only teaching code, we are promoting a healthier, more inclusive culture for the industry. This means we attract women who may have had second thoughts about being in tech. Beers, pizza, and all nighters may appeal to many and can be great on occasion- but this needs to stop being the rule. That lifestyle is not suited to everyone…men included! We need to change the status quo to have a positive effect for everyone and we are starting our movement with women.
Yes! We have amazing men in the team and supporting our efforts every step of the way. We know that to create change, we need to harbour the power of the entire community. We believe that diversity is everyone’s responsibility. However, our classes are for women, those who identify as women and non-binary people.
Our foundation course requires no previous experience. We ask for well-researched interest and a commitment to the course. If you tick these boxes, we will offer you a place on the course. Places are limited and, therefore, we do offer them on a first come, first served basis.
We want to be accessible to as many people as possible whilst fulfilling our India mission. Please talk to us and we’ll work out the best plan, together.
We try and make the course as accessible as possible.
Due to the nature of our one for one model, we can’t offer free places unless we have a partner organisation or individual supporting us. We will announce these on our blog and on our social channels, so do keep an eye out. Our latest scholarship collaboration was with Amaliah. You can read more about it here.
Not yet! We will get there!
