  • Over the last few years, and arguably punching way above its weight, Code First: Girls has been doing important work.
  • Today the organisation is upping the stakes, kicking off a campaign to teach 20,000 young women in the U.K.
  • Specifically, I’m told the programme will offer training support to employees from the “2020 campaign”-supporting partner companies, with the opportunity to train their young female staff and gift free coding courses on the partner’s behalf to other young women.
  • In addition to the training, Code First: Girls is building a community platform to support the course alumnae so that they cam learn from and support each other.
