If you talk about the growth of the tech industry, it’s important to pay attention to the gender gap that exists within this niche. Research shows that despite the advancements in the IT sector, women are still leaving this industry at a 45% higher rate than men, with only 21% believing tech is a field where their careers could thrive.
This problem can only be eliminated through proper mentorship, executive sponsorship, inspiring role models in leadership positions, and flexibility in learning opportunities. For this purpose, Reactree is partnering with CodeGirls, a community-funded coding and business skills boot camp, run by ConsulNet Corporation with its partners.
The aim for CodeGirls is simple; to close the gender gap and provide equal opportunities and resources to women, which will lead to an inclusive tech economy and the growth of the technology industry. Reactree’s role in this partnership is to provide mentorship training to the students and teams associated with CodeGirls, teaching them the importance and basics of Flutter, keeping in mind the lack of female resources in this field, and in an attempt to create a more inclusive, diverse, and growing community of individuals in the tech industry.
With this partnership, Reactree plans to work together to improve gender diversity and lead to high-end technological solutions for businesses. We look forward to working with CodeGirls on this mutual objective.
