Coded by Young Women of Color is a non-profit that educates, empowers, and engages young Women of Color in Computer Science and emerging tech. This is an industry where Black women currently make up less than 2% of the workforce. CYWOC aims to bring systemic change by creating a highly-skilled, competitive talent pipeline. In the summer of 2021, CYWOC started providing education through online classes hosted by caring and talented instructors who believe in the mission. They teach JavaScript, C#, and Unity courses. They promote portfolio and career development including paid internships and job opportunities with local development firms, starting with those in the Portland, ME area. The skill and knowledge to understand and interact with these languages and technologies are highly sought after by today’s employers. In time, the supported skill levels of all participating women will range from complete beginner to highly trained. In addition to learning the fundamentals, students’ work will be showcased in community events, and our partners are offering staff augmentation opportunities.
