47. Kate Kirwin – She Codes

Danelle and Charlie talk with Kate Kirwin, Founder and Lead Organiser of She Codes, a 5-year old organisation that has taught more than 4,500 women to code.

“There’s no shortage of women… and it really frustrates me when people tell me all the time ‘Oh, there’s just no women in tech because women don’t want to do it, or they’re not out there. They are! They just need the support to be able to get there.” ~ Kate Kirwin.

Amen. Kate and her team are doing wonderful work.
