In 2012, interest in learning how to code skyrocketed. But even before the boom, Ladies Learning Code was formed by a group of women in Toronto to offer beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills to an underrepresented demographic in technology — women. Since 2011, Ladies Learning Code, a not-for-profit organization, has introduced over 3000 women (and men) technical skills that range from HTML, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, mobile web development, Photoshop, and more, in three cities across Canada.

In this session, Heather Payne (founder) and Pearl Chen (first-ever lead instructor) will come together to discuss insights they have learned from Ladies Learning Code over the past year. Rather than “just another women in tech talk”, learn how you can use what we’ve learned to bring more diversity to your own company, organization or user group.
