How Do We Give Back?
A percentage of our profit goes to our social program that enables underrepresented young women to reach their career potential through free coding bootcamps. Every mission starts by solving a problem, and we collaborate with local institutions with the necessary insights and expertise to develop a successful coding bootcamp. Our social mission is to improve lives and address diversity issues in the tech industry.
Technology is the future and we enhance opportunities for particularly young women from underrepresented and diverse backgrounds to be a part of that future, with the goal to bridge the gender gap in tech which is one of the biggest social problem in the tech industry. In the very near future, we hope to create more WemanConnect social programs to help other groups, such as people with disabilities, or abused children by domestic violence.
The technology boom is unstoppable; with more than five million tech jobs expected to be added by 2027 across the globe, and web developers have the highest prospects, according to a report by Cisco Systems and market intelligence firm IDC.
