Yesterday was worldwide #internationaldayofwomenandgirlsinscience (February 11) - a day we celebrated female role models in STEM across the world.
So we’d love you to meet the unstoppable #STEM trail-blazer #AllyWatson who’s on a rocketship mission to debug the #gendergap and get more girls and women building the internet and thriving in the world of coding.👩🏽💻
The @sydneymorningherald named Ally one of Australia’s nine most influential female entrepreneurs of 2017, and for good reason. After spending seven years working as a .NET developer across the UK and Australia, Ally’s unique and refreshing insights into the life of a woman in a male-dominated industry led her to co-found the highly acclaimed @codelikeagirlau in 2015.
@codelikeagirlau is a #socialenterpriseproviding girls and women from any background with the confidence, tools, learning pathways, #knowledge and support to start careers - and flourish - in the world of #coding.
#CodeLikeAGirl’s efforts in addressing the #gendergap in tech have been commended numerously; receiving a Gold Disruptor award at 2016’s Australian Computer Society Awards, 2016’s B&T Women in Media Award for Technology and the company taking home an Education merit award at the @cityofmelbourneMelbourne's 2017 & 2016 #TechDiversityAwards.
We can’t wait to beam Ally’s powerful technology career story onto the big screen as a VIRTUAL SPEAKER at the #girledworldsummit @sydney_uni this Saturday February 16 alongside trailblazing founders, STEM entrepreneurs and world shapers to show teenage girls what they could be.
