Code First: Girls , Head of Communities
I work with Code First:Girls to introduce more women into tech sector. I am responsible for the UK-wide programme of free coding courses, community events and other initiatives targeting young women who are considering a career in tech. I make sure that we’re on track with our 2020 Campaign, whose aim is to teach 20,000 young women to code by 2020.
I believe that the best thing you can give others is the access to free education. I am a linguist with a computer science degree, which I completed just to prove the point that women can do it if they want to.
