How Northcoders is empowering Women in Tech

Northcoders collaborates with various organisations, such as Innovate Her and Girls Who Code, to continuously provide useful information to students who are women and other gender minorities. We are working to bridge the gender gap by improving our pre-course materials, introducing our Gender Diversity Fund and supporting events such as Reframe Women in Tech. Whether you are starting your career with Northcoders, returning after a break with Tech Returners or seeking new opportunities, remember that you are not alone on your journey. Embrace the resources available, build strong networks, and continue to inspire and be inspired by fellow women in tech. 

If you’re looking for your first step into tech, you can discover Northcoders’ 13-week intensive bootcamps:
