Wyncode is a champion of closing the gap for women in tech. We strongly believe that the Future of Tech is Female, and thus, we want to spark a conversation about building a better tech community through diversity. Join us with a panel of influencers to discuss how we can close the gap.
Hear from our Co-Founder, Johanna Mikkola how Wyncode Academy has a $1.4 million scholarship commitment to promoting increased female involvement in technology. The scholarships encourage females to build technical foundations in the areas of computer coding, user experience and user interface (UX/UI) design, and digital marketing, ultimately building long-term meaningful careers in technology. The scholarship aims to balance the school’s female enrollments as Wyncode strives to create an equal gender parity environment in their classrooms and throughout the South Florida tech scene.
