It's now widely recognized that diverse teams are smarter, make better decisions, and are able to solve problems more effectively. Yet, the tech sector still lacks diversity.
So how do we bridge the gap? Le Wagon decided to take a step forward and promote coding skills to a more diverse range of people.
