World’s Largest Women in Tech Nonprofit to Work with Software Leader to Empower Women in Local Tech Community
SALT LAKE CITY - JANUARY, 17th 2019 — Women Who Code (WWCode), the world’s largest and most active community working to support women engineers, is proud to announce a partnership with Adobe Inc. Thanks to their support, WWCode will launch a local Network presence in Salt Lake City, providing women engineers in the area with mentorship, free training, events, and career guidance.
Adobe is a company that has proven its commitment to inclusive workplace practices and has been named on Forbes magazine’s Best Workplace for Diversity list two years in a row. Now, through Adobe’s support of Women Who Code, the company will be directly supporting the engineering community in Salt Lake City. WWCode Salt Lake City’s inaugural event will take place on January 17 at 5:30 pm and is already nearly sold out. WWCode in total holds over 1,800 free workshops around the world each year.
Women Who Code Global Leadership Director Joey Rosenberg said, “The commitment from local leaders and support of companies like Adobe is key in the work that we do here at WWCode. The launch of this Network means that the engineers of Salt Lake City will have a resource for support, inspiration, and training, and that has the ability to have a dramatic impact on their lives and careers.”
The WWCode Salt Lake City Network will be led by Directors Savanna Meyers and Maureen Botoman. Maureen spoke about the launch, “Women Who Code has the ability to add real value to the tech community. The support and advice of other women can be so important. WWCode means so much to me on a personal and professional level. I'm really excited to be able to share that with other women in the area.”
“We are proud to be working with Women Who Code to launch its new Salt Lake City Network. There is a huge amount of opportunity in Utah for technical women to grow their careers at companies like Adobe, and we’re excited to see this community grow over time,” said Katie Juran, Senior Director, Diversity & Inclusion, Adobe.
