WoCCode is now accepting applications for members of its inaugural 2021 cohort. Follow this link to apply: http://bit.ly/woccode-apply-2020
Women of Color (WoC) – which includes Black, indigenous, and Latinx minorities – are the most underrepresented demographic from high paying industries, including software engineering. Yet WoC are flush with the talent, creativity, and social insight to solve complex problems and lead in the software industry. Using a dedicated Slack space and cohorts of 4-5 people, this program seeks to unite WoC and other members of minoritized groups, to battle feelings of isolation and marginalization that are prevalent in educational institutions and industry settings. Participants will be placed in cohorts of 4-5 people and encouraged to meet on a 1-2 week basis. We will also host monthly 1 hour webinars, featuring peer-lead instructional tutorials and talks by professionals from academia and the software industry. Our first kick-off webinar will be in January 2021.
Forms submitted before November 24, 2020 will receive full consideration. Anyone may apply to WoCCode.
WoCCode is an Astropy sponsored IDE (Inclusion, Diversity, and Empowerment) project, which receives funding support from the Moore Foundation. Questions about the program can be directed to WoC.Code@gmail.com
