Rutgers Research Computing Community,
Women of Color (WoC) – which includes Black, indigenous, and Latinx minorities – are the most underrepresented demographic from high paying industries, including software engineering. Yet WoC are flush with the talent, creativity, and social insight to solve complex problems and lead in the software industry.
The WoCCode program seeks to unite WoC and other members of minoritized groups, to battle feelings of isolation and marginalization that are prevalent in educational institutions and industry settings. Using a dedicated Slack space and cohorts of 4-5 people, the WoCCode program will create a peer mentoring network for WoC and members of other minoritized groups to engage, receive feedback, and troubleshoot issues around their participation in open source software communities.
ANYONE may apply to join WoCCode.
