Flatiron School has partnered with diverse organizations to award over $500,000 in scholarship funding to make coding education more accessible to aspiring female programmers.
Diversity as we often discuss it is a proxy for diversity of thought. Having a wide range of views and experiences represented on your team means you’ll be in a better position to see — and solve — more and bigger problems. The bottom line: You can’t effectively build products for the whole world if your organization only represents a small slice of it.

“It’s an incredibly empowering experience to be in a room with 50, or even 2500, women like myself. You feel supported. In the end, it’s about creating and harnessing a small community so people can make things happen.”
Product Manager, InMarket
“It’s really still very much a boys club in the tech space, so go in there with confidence and find other women who can support you in your journey… you’re not in it alone. It can be easy to think, ‘I’m not a code genius, this isn’t the place for me!’ But it’s not true.”
Software Engineer, Two Bulls
“When you’re a junior developer, you learn quickly; you rely on that. Even today, leaving work I thought, ‘I’m not prepared for this thing I have to build.’ But, in a way, that’s good. It’s a sign that I’m constantly being challenged to grow.”
