“I had a very good chat with another mentor from ZHAW Zurich University. She is part of the diversity group there and is organizing courses for teachers of grades one through six. These classes help expose young girls and boys to tech opportunities by learning to program in a very practical way. I found this approach quite interesting. But it also means we need to wait another 10-20 years before we can reap those benefits.” –
Tobias Rein, Founder & CTO @ GetYourGuide, Hack’n’Lead sponsor
“The only way to solve the female to male participation in IT jobs is if we solve this together so I would invite every other company to come here and join us, so we can help females to love IT and work with us” –
Kristen Renner, CIO @ Credit Suisse, Hack’n’Lead Sponsor
“We would like to see more diversity in the pipeline. It’s hard to change that now on the spot so we have to invest in the future. Events like Hack’n’Lead which encourage women to move into coding are definitely one of the things that we believe can make that happen” –
