Problem

There are very few girls in IT. We want to change this and even out the numbers. We want more women in tech because it makes perfect sense. And because soon, nobody will be able to do without digital literacy. And because companies cannot do without new IT talents and diversity in their teams.

Solution

We organize courses for girls and women. On programing, web development, graphic design or data analytics. We create an environment, where they do not have to feel ashamed for raising their hand and where they can improve their skills. During workshops, our coaches are happy to answer any question and to help tackle any issue. And then there is the Czechitas community of coaches and course alumni, ready to provide advice regarding professional career and further education.
