A 100 hour full-time introduction to frontend web development crash course. During this program, female participants ages 16 + will go through an intensive bootcamp-style learning experience, where they will learn the basics of web development, build their own static website, network with established women in tech, and experience a variety of leadership workshops.
Why Women Edition?
AlMakinah aims to play an active role in addressing the imbalances in the gender ratio in tech by inviting more women to explore this field with GearUp Women Edition. By Global standards, despite making up 57% of all professional occupations, women held only 25% of all computing occupations, and even fewer held leadership roles.
In addition, the World Bank reported in 2016 that the rate of female unemployment in Egypt was around 25% - that’s not including women who were not actively searching for a job.
We believe, through learning the basics of programming and building websites, GearUp Women Edition provides women with access to numerous job opportunities, which include remote jobs where they could gain a stable income from the comfort of their homes!
