Women in CSCollaborations with projects that promote the participation of women in CS fields
We support projects and initiatives aiming to introduce young women and girls to STEM fields, like information technology. Through workshops, courses and events, these initiatives introduce programming to women. Female students act as role-models so that girls are inspired about technology. Interested young women get an overview and spark their interest in fields where they are still under-represented.
