The Code to Change in Pakistan 2018
Are you ready to arm yourself with digital skills and step into the world of technology? Are you looking to enhance your existing digital skills and learn from the best? If yes, then this event is for you!
We conduct Code to Change event each year, and for 2018, we’ve decided to hold one in Pakistan – a third-world developing country. The Digital Revolution has significantly altered the way we think, live, and work. The world has already reached a point where getting a job relies considerably on your knowledge of digital skills and proficiency in them. According to experts, 90% jobs in the future will ‘demand’ digital skills. The lack of women in the technology sector is alarming in the developed world as it is and one can easily imagine how drastic the condition in developing countries such as Pakistan would be.
Code to Change is focused on closing the skills gap in technology sector while striving to address the digital gender divide. Our program has been created to inspire and teach women the crucial skills to succeed in the job market of the digital world. According to the Council of European Professional Informatics Society, 20% of 2.7 million people currently employed in the technology sector are women. The percentage drops further when you look at the IT sector.
We aim to teach women in Pakistan the essential skills that are considered to be a must for pursuing careers in the technology sector. Our Code to Change event will be held in Peshawar, Pakistan.
The core objective that we hope to achieve with this event is to bring about a change in the mindset of women of Pakistan regarding digital skills and provide them with an opportunity to learn and grow with our exceptional mentors.
Who Is The Code To Change Event For?
Our target audience includes women who wish to enter technology sector but don’t know where to start and women who are between jobs or want to expand their digital skill arsenal.
