Introducing “Women Coding for Change”

If you’ve been following this blog, you probably know that we co-hosted the XPRT Women Code-a-thon with ChickTech in March. The event ran smoothly, we got some great ideas for future XPRT workloads, and Jennie gave a recap in “Women develop new perspectives for the XPRTs.”

What you might not have known—until last week—is that the XPRT team brought a video crew with us to Seattle. We’ve spent the last few months building an eight-part video series that tells some of the stories we saw unfold at the XPRT Women Code-a-thon. In “Women Coding for Change,” you’ll meet the code-a-thon’s winners and see their work; learn about the gender gap in tech; and hear stories of mentorship, community, and more.

Today, you can see the series trailer and “The Problem,” which explores the numbers behind the gender disparity and what they mean for all of us. Just go to the YouTube playlist here, and keep an eye out for new videos coming soon.
