HOW ATLANTA-BASED WOMEN WHO CODE EXPANDED TO 122 COUNTRIES DURING THE PANDEMIC
While the pandemic halted international travel, it only helped Women Who Code (WWC) become an even more integral part of the global tech community.
CEO & co-founder Alaina Percival told Hypepotamus that the non-profit was in 20 countries before the start of the pandemic. In early 2021, they have a quarter of a million members in 122 countries.
That’s an impressive number for an organization that relied heavily on in-person events. “Our core focus is around seeing diverse women excel in their technology career. We’re really helping people in the industry make it to that 11th year and make it to those leadership positions,” said Percival.
