“Underscores how critical diversity is in every field, not just computer science.”
Q&A with filmmaker after screening
By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. CODE examines the reasons why many girls and people of color are not seeking out careers and opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles, and sexism all play a role in this national crisis. This insightful documentary intercuts expert voices from the worlds of technology, psychology, science, and education with inspiring stories of women who are fighting to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. The combination will inspire change in viewpoints the educational system, startup culture, and the way women see themselves in the world of coding.
