The second edition of the Women Coding for Success program launched on March 10th by way of concluding AmCham’s Women’s Week. The sessions take place all day on Saturdays, oftentimes at AmCham, and oftentimes at workplaces around Paris who have partnered with the initiative to expand upon women’s involvement and influence within STEM fields. Some of which include Willa, DLA Piper, and Station F.
Above all we have become a community. On a macro-scale with AmCham, the community has been nothing but inclusive and inspiring. We have been encouraged to attend their event series and actively contribute. As for our micro-group, we work together to solve complex problems, while forming a strong community of diverse, intelligent, and ambitious women ready to take on the world of tech. We work together to solve complex problems, while forming a strong community of diverse, intelligent, and globally minded women ready to take on the world of tech.
Monica, one of the participants who commutes from a city outside of Lille, says, “If someone were to walk in the room during our Saturday sessions, they would think we have all been colleagues for years. There’s a cohesion in the group that makes it easy to work together, and since everyone speaks both French and English, communication is simple and efficient. Even though our diversity of backgrounds should make it difficult for us to communicate, we have a shared goal and common interests; in this, we are strong.”
Thank you to AmCHam, and a special thank you to AmCham Women, and Skillogs, especially, Gayle Gorvett, Noel Thevenet, and Raphael Moraglia for their support and dedication to the success of our program.
