G|Code offers young women of color a safe co-living, working, and learning community where they will learn cutting-edge technology skills, gain employment experience and connect with our world renown network of mentors, advisors and enterprise partners.
WHAT WE DO
We design programming to empower young women of color interested in tech.
A proposed pilot program designed for young women of color between the ages of 18 to 25 to unlock their potential and break into the tech industry as disruptive change makers. Participants will live in the G|Code House for the entirety of the program.
Boston is a city of great opportunity but also geographic and demographic inequity. This drastically impacts young women of color. There are many programs that benefit them during their high school years, but after that their options are limited.
