Women Who Code lends support to women in tech

Techstination feature for Friday, April 20, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Giving a boost to women working in technology.    Alaina Percival is the founder and CEO of Women Who Code….a group that started small in the Bay area….and has expanded around the world with membership topping 100 thousand.   Percival says the group is having an impact…

“Our leaders receive promotions, they receive pay increases, they are called into companies as thought leaders, invited to speak at conferences.  We’ve had several invited to become advisors.”

Membership is free at womenwhocode.com…and there are other benefits…including scholarships as well.   Besides that, the group also conducts a survey on issues surround pay equality in the workplace.
