CodeChix #GivingTuesday Campaign!!
This year we are celebrating our first #givingtuesday campaign to raise funds for our 2019 programs and increase our impact in addressing the retention issue for women engineers and technologists in the industry.
Our Goal: $15,000
2019 Programs with Impact
DevPulseCon: DevPulseCon is a two-day technical and educational micro-conference focused on women engineers, developers, users, administrators and geeks working in industry and academia. In 2019, we are expanding to include Product Managers, Program Managers, Project Managers and Engineering Managers to elevate the conversation and learning. It includes one day of technical talks and "safe-space" panel discussions on "uncomfortable" (no social media allowed during panels) topics and a second day of purely technical hands-on workshops developed and taught per CodeChix Hands-on Workshop Guidelines.
Technical Hands-on Workshops: Targeted deeply technical workshops for mid/senior women engineers and technologists to learn and practice new technologies, tools, best practices and techniques. These include workshops on programming languages (Go, Node), BlockChain, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Debugging and, of course, Open Source !
NEW: Technical Programs with elite Universities and Research institutions to provide much-needed Product and Engineering input from an industry perspective and contributing to open source.
NEW: Cultural Hands-on Workshops: Targeted deeply thoughtful and sustainable practices and techniques to address the entrenched human issues such as bias, management practices, mindset and soft skills.
