// We talk with Kate Kirwin, whose 5-year old organisation has taught more than 4,500 women to code…

🎙Recorded down at Riff in the city, Danelle and Charlie from Startup West talk with Kate Kirwin, founder and lead organiser of She Codes, a 5-year old organisation that has taught more than 4,500 women to code and also opened operations in Brisbane this year.

“There’s no shortage of women… and it really frustrates me when people tell me all the time ‘Oh, there’s just no women in tech because women don’t want to do it, or they’re not out there. They are! They just need the support to be able to get there.”

Kate Kirwin

Amen. Kate and her team are doing wonderful work.
