How do you, as a company, reach and attract sought after competence to the workplace? And how do you, as an employer, create an inclusive work environment where all of your employees can prosper, no matter of gender, background or age?
Research shows the more diverse the team, the higher the productivity, creativity and profitability of the team. Still in 2020, less than 10% of developers in Sweden were women.
We want to change that! Pink Programming is now launching a hands-on course with practical tools for how companies can attract female developers and create an inclusive workplace with a diverse workforce.
The course will take place in late Spring 2021, with a limited number of tickets. Tickets are now available!
Pink Programming, Sweden’s largest network for female developers, has over the years gained unique insights from the thousands of women in the industry who have shared their experiences with us. We have teamed up with PkByrån, leading experts in gender equality and inclusive recruitment, to combine our collective knowledge with evidence based research and statistics. The result is a unique and sought after course, focusing on improving gender equality at workplaces through recruitment and inclusive work environments.
With Attract Female Developers we are targeting companies interested in creating a more gender equal workplace, including recruitment processes, to attract and retain female developers. Preferably management and HR representatives.
During the course we will share the insights and experiences we have gathered from women working as developers. It will be combined with lectures, discussions and interaction on how to address it and create change. In between the sessions you will get exercises to work on, and at the end of the course you will have a digital toolbox to help you transform your learnings into practice at your workplace.
Participants will gain knowledge on:
The premises to create and maintain an inclusive work environment
Which aspects female developers considers important in their employer
The mechanisms behind marketing of a workplace that is appealing to women
How to write ads and recruitment ads that’s both appealing to women and inclusive
Understanding how your communication, as an employer, is perceived
A course consists of 2 sessions, 3 hours each, and will be held digitally by course leaders from Pink Programming and PkByrån. Two courses will be available to register for in Spring 2021:
April 20th + May 4th
April 22nd + May 6th The course can be delivered in Swedish or English
