Digital banking start-up Revolut are going to offer monthly coding classes for women in London
The classes will be free and run from their offices in Canary Wharf
CEO Nikolay Storonsky said: “While a lot of tech companies talk a good game about how important gender balance is to them, we’ve identified our own imbalance within our engineering teams and are taking action ourselves to help tackle this issue. I hope Revolut can really kick this kind of initiative off in the hope that other tech companies follow suit and provide more opportunities for women who are keen to learn code.”
Classes will aim to offer one on one support, with limited spaces of 15 – 20 people
The first set of classes are said to be starting in June 2018.
