Women Who Code started as a community group in 2011 when a handful of technologists decided they wanted to change the industry experience for women engineers. Since then, it has become a global non-profit organization and the world’s largest and most active community dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers. One city at a time, Women Who Code spread around the world, reaching more than 20 countries.Women Who Code Richmond was launched in 2017 when local leaders, including Michele Matthews and Briana Augenreich stepped up to architect the community. The first event was held in October at VCU. Since then, amazing things have happened!
Companies, inspired to help change the face of tech, have joined the cause, including great local partners like founding network sponsor Capital One, and others including Mobelux, authentic digital, veracity, and snag a job.
Women Who Code leaders have been recognized as industry leaders, and continue to pave the way to a more diverse and inclusive workplace experience for everyone.
WWCode Evangelist and former Director Briana Augenreich spoke about the importance of Women Who Code in Richmond saying, “It’s bringing together a network of resources and peoples from all over, sharing information support and inspiration that would have been hard to share otherwise.”
Many thanks to our partners who support Women Who Code in our city!
