We're a small nonprofit with a big mission: to propel more women in tech, on a global scale, for free. In 2015 alone we awarded $350,000+ in combined tech conference tickets and coding school scholarships, with the help of partners committed to our mission. In addition, we produced 3,000 free technical events and tripled our membership to 50,000 strong around the world… and we’re just getting started.
“WWCode is a constant inspiration when I think about the things I can achieve. After many years as an accountant, I became a software tester, only to discover I wanted to build the software being used instead. I’m going to be one of them. I’m going to be a Woman Who Codes.”
Regina is a woman who codes and like her, our members step up, lean in, break thru, champion, innovate and ultimately ask more of themselves and those around them, which includes the tech industry as a whole. In 2016, more is our WWCode motto.
We tripled in membership this year; we plan on supporting even more women in the new year. We will provide more resources for our ridiculously talented, beloved, amazing (insert a volcano of gushing praise, here) Network Directors & Leaders. We will offer more technical programs and events in more countries and more cities than ever before. More opportunities for women to become tech influencers and leaders that change the industry.
More access. More scholarships. More resources. More inspiration. More impact... That’s just how we do at WWCode.
To do all of this (and more), we need you. If you’ve attended a WWCode event, received a scholarship, gone to a tech conference for free, and have been inspired in any way, consider supporting us. We’ve outlined below a couple of ways to do just that during our year-end campaign.
If every WWCode member pitched in $5 per month, it would fund all of our work for 2016. Imagine what $50 or $100 could do?! Any gift, large or small goes a long way.
