At Vodafone we understand the important role girls and women have played throughout the history of science and technology. Despite this, both in education and the workplace, girls and women are still hugely underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) fields.
That’s why in 2017 we launched our #CodeLikeAGirl programme in partnership with Code First:Girls to provide a free, 4 day coding workshop to girls aged 14-18 from 26 countries across the world.
We taught them the technical skills to build their own websites, including Html, CSS, GitHub and JQuery which provided them with the skills, confidence and encouragement to one day thrive in a STEM focused career. This programme forms part of Vodafone’s wider ambition to be the best employer for women, by 2025.
Our next 2019 workshops will happen in August 2019 on the following dates:
- 6th - 9th – Paddington
- 13th - 16th – Newbury
- 27th - 30th - Manchester
Applications are now closed for all of the above workshops.
