Women Who Code Twin Cities is dedicated to helping women, transgender and non-binary people excel in their technology careers
Did you know that 41% of women leave tech by mid-career?
We’re dedicated to retaining women in the current workforce through building awareness of the barriers that keep women from learning and advancing, improving the culture within tech companies and providing women with the support they need to grow their careers. Most companies focus on recruiting within their diversity and inclusion work, but retainment is a huge problem.
Don’t get us wrong, we agree there is a pipeline problem — we need to remove barriers and generate interest in tech within the younger generations as well. But what good is focusing on the pipeline if it just ends up in a sewer? Improving the existing culture will make tech less hostile and in turn, a more suitable and desirable option for younger people to consider when choosing a career path.
