Introduction

Today, tech is still a male-dominated industry.

According to a recent survey of over 400,000 developers in China, only 10.4% identified as female (Programmers Inn 2020). This staggering 9:1 ratio of male to female developers has made many in the industry concerned.

Diverse teams perform better. Individuals from different genders, races, backgrounds and experiences bring different perspectives that can lead to innovative solutions. When 90% of your development team is male, itโ€™s difficult to recognize the needs of your female users.

This is a problem we all need to solve. 

That's why Le Wagon is partnering with Ladies Who Tech to #BreakTheBias and empower women with a full scholarship to our Web or Data bootcamps in March 2022.
