Join us at The Frontier for a special, free screening of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, a documentary film that exposes the lack of American female and minority software engineers, and explores reasons for this gap, and learn how this critical gap can be closed.
The complimentary screening will start at 6pm in The Frontier's Homebase. Snacks & drinks will be provided!
BACKGROUND OF THE DOCUMENTARY
Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play into this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry, and have their voices heard.
CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture, and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.
