She Codes Too;

Empower Women to Code

Who is behind SheCodesToo;

My name is Raghad, I work as a Software Engineer in Stockholm. When I was a computer science lecturer in Baghdad, I observed female students being discouraged from developing their tech skills. This made me want to create a space for them to feel comfortable and empowered to become professional programmers. Hence I started She Codes Too initiative, to helps young women who do not have sufficient programming skills to find a job. The teaching and supervision provided by this initiative will give women the necessary skills and confidence to pursue a career in tech.
