Making gender parity in tech a reality
A more diverse tech workforce is more creative and effective. At Flatiron School, we have the opportunity to fast-track tomorrow’s female tech talent into the industry – and change the culture for the better. Here’s how we’re working to make gender parity in tech a reality.
We’ve awarded over $1M in scholarships for women breaking into tech — and this number will grow with our Access Scholarship.
Online and on campus, we foster a supportive comunity where women can thrive.
We model the tech culture we want to see; our students carry that with them as they launch careers.
