Supporting diversity in the tech industry is something we’re incredibly passionate about at The Iron Yard, and something we’re actively working to impact. We hope to inspire communities to have open and honest conversations about the issue of diversity in tech, and create an inclusive, safe environment for tech education.
To that end, we are working with local partners to offer screenings of the documentary CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap. Our goal is to bring together our students, staff and members of the local tech community to talk about how we can increase gender diversity in the field.
The CODE documentary exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap. The film raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?
Below is a list of upcoming screenings on our campuses. Want to learn more about CODE? Check out the trailer here.
