“We’re delighted to host the Women Who Code Frontend Summit,” said BCG Digital Ventures Engineering Director Maria Gomez. “The diversity of our multi-disciplinary teams is critical to us when we’re building new digital businesses. This is one of the main reasons why we believe in providing a strong support network for women in engineering – not only at BCGDV but throughout the ecosystem.”
WWCode Front End 2019 is the in-person culmination of the new WWCode Front End Community, which has provided virtual trainings, webinars, slack meetups, and access to industry experts throughout its inaugural year. Speaking about the summit, community leader and WWCode Front End Fellow Jennifer Ponder said, “these experiences are incredibly important to give engineers access to explore cutting edge technology and build their professional networks so that we can continue to see women accelerate their careers across the industry.”
WWCode Front End 2019 is made possible thanks to the generous support of BCG Digital Ventures, Taxfix, and Urban Sports Club. By sponsoring this event, they are leading the way to create a world where women are proportionally represented at all levels in the industry, as technical leaders, executives, founders, venture capitalists, board members, and software engineers.
“Our Track Communities are unique because they bring together engineers with similar technical interests, and go beyond borders. This has allowed us to connect with so many new people, and affect the lives of tech professionals around the world in a more broad and profound way,” said Women Who Code Interim Chief Executive Officer Joey Rosenberg. “WWCode Front End 2019 is a chance to bring that all home, and connect our members not only with new technologies and innovative ideas but also with one another.”
