1 Million Women To Tech is a global online technology education program for women run by a small charity ABC Education, a Silicon Valley 501(c)3 educational non-profit and Equal World, a woman-owned mission driven startup social enterprise. It's mission is to offer free coding education to 1 million women by Jan 1, 2020.
Two annual educational programs are open to the Learners and Mentors: the #SummerOfCode aimed to increase digital literacy and #WinterOfData aimed to increase digital numeracy. Both program can be taken as a free, donation-based Do-It-Yourself (DIY) track, or two levels of paid memberships are available with increasing level of support and recognition: Gold Membership and VIP Membership.
1 Million Women To Tech brings expertise in learn to code workshops, remote education and women’s outreach. The first #SummerOfCode (SOC) was held July 14 - Oct 14, 2018 broadcast from Oxford, UK to the world online. With a plan to reach 300 women, within three months 19,951 women from 145+ countries had pre-registered and the social media following grew from zero to 160k+ in those same three months.
The current educational program is #WinterOfData (WOD) 2019.
Every year we're launching two big learning projects. Join for free as a Learner, as a Mentor or both!
Summer of Code
Winter of Data
The Winter Of Data #WinterOfData (WOD) introduces the key areas of statistics, data science, and data analytics. Often looked upon as a black art, or a black box, the contents of which should be left to someone else, this subject is crucial to the rising technologist to grasp, and I would argue, even the common person living in the 21st century.
Our mission: to offer free coding education to 1 million women by Jan 1, 2020.
