Background

Research shows the more diverse the team, the higher the productivity, creativity and profitability of the team. Still, 92 % of all developers are men. We want to change that.

Over the years we have gained unique insights from thousands of people in the industry who have shared their experiences with us, and developed the course with experts in gender equality and inclusive recruitment, to combine our knowledge with evidence based research and statistics. The result is a unique, interactive course, focusing on improving gender equality at workplaces through recruitment and inclusive work environments.
