Helping female students discover tech with CodeWomen


We have frequently observed that girls have a tendency to stay clear of the tech entire world. Whether or not it is mainly because they really feel like an outsider, worried, or insecure, with out the proper guidance and motivation, they are more probably to be discouraged to pursue a career in this discipline. 

At TravelPerk, we want to shut this gap. We want to persuade gals to be aspect of a neighborhood where gender does not outline their paths. We want to supply a place wherever they have equivalent opportunities to find out and develop.  

Just one way we get ourselves involved is by volunteering for CodeWomen. Past Monday, we invited CodeWomen to our Barcelona HQ, in which we hosted their pair-programming session to offer advice to female pupils.
