Women Who Code (WWC), a U.S.-based organization of 360,000 people supporting women who work in the tech sector, is shutting down due to a lack of funding.

    That’s odd.

    Last I heard, they were making bank with their Raytheon Partnership

    Turns out that’s Girls who code, which is still operational and helping generate profit from war.

    Avoid that one. Ladies of code seems fine. Rather donate to/get involved with that organisation instead.

      What are you saying that you should be a man to be part of the military industrial complex. What kind of equality is that? /s

      Damn that’s crazy I did not know that! I saw Tarika Barrett speak at a conference several years prior and at that time Girls Who Code seemed like a pretty good org! Sad that they’re selling out/supporting a defense contractor.

        Pay no attention to the man variable sex person behind the curtain, just look at the marketing and PR please!

    That’s really sad to hear. The IT world is still a very hostile place especially for woman.
