Lunch & Screening of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap

  • Hyland Software 28105 Clemens Road Westlake, OH, 44145 United States (map)

“If you’re human, you’re biased—but that doesn’t mean hidden bias can't be overcome.” 

Hyland Software and Tech Elevator are partnering to host a screening of the award-winning film CODE documentary

CODE documentary exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap. CODE raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?...

“CODE was such a great conversation starter...This film isn’t about and for women; it’s about the greater responsibility we – men and women – have in reducing the gender gap in technology.”

- Kristen Weber, Principal Program Manager @ Expedia Inc.

This is a must-see film if you’re:

• Working in technology or managing a technology team

Twitter is passionate about supporting women in engineering and making learning to program more accessible to young women. We view this as an opportunity, not a challenge.

Diversity matters because it drives innovation, richer thinking and more real-world solutions. Being involved with the CODE film project is one of the many investments we are making toward improving the gender balance throughout computer science and technology.
