Women Who Code Announces Launch of Technical Track Communities
The World’s Largest Community of Women Engineers Unveils New Deep Learning Tech Programming Featuring Online and Offline Participation Options
ATLANTA - MARCH 5TH, 2019 —Women Who Code (WWCode), the largest and most active nonprofit dedicated to inspiring women software engineers to succeed in technology, is proud to announce the launch of new Track Communities. This program will initially be comprised of six technical Tracks, each focusing on building learning communities that will contain both online and offline engagement opportunities.
The initial launch of the Women Who Code Track Program will feature communities based on Python, Data Science, Mobile, Front End, Blockchain, and Cloud. Programming will include webinars, online tutorial projects and study groups, technical talks, speaker events, and at least one in-person conference in 2019. Through the WWCode Leadership Fellows Program, a talented team has been formed to develop and lead the communities.
The execution of Women Who Code’s Track Communities was made possible thanks to the generous support of a number of organizations including The Home Depot, VMware, Bank of America, McKinsey & Company, Capital One, Mozilla, Stellar, BCGDV, the Python Software Foundation, and Hired. Their contributions will be used to directly fund the creation of events, seminars, and materials that will make up this program.
“Track Communities speak to the core work of Women Who Code - to bring collective minds together to grow and strengthen skills. The virtual component of Tracks is exciting because it allows us to reach an even greater audience of members who might not live close enough to attend a local event and provide them with the kind of continuous learning that is so important to tech professionals,” said Women Who Code Chief Leadership Officer Joey Rosenberg. "While developing the new communities, our inaugural Fellows will also gain valuable leadership experience and profile-raising opportunities to accelerate their careers. And of course, we couldn’t do any of this without the support of our amazing sponsors.”
