Who we are

We are a community closing the gender digital divide through IT skills training.

Czechitas is recognized as the leading IT skills training platform in the Czech Republic actively focused on greater diversity in IT fields; improved quality of STEM education for young people; and broader access to affordable high-quality digital skills training for all. Our community’s success have been honored in the Czech Republic, across Europe, and internationally.

By 2025, Czechitas aims to become the largest platform in the Czech Republic for lifelong learning in IT; and for digital skills and career growth towards professions of the future.

Why We Do IT

The future of work and the future of education depend not only on digital access and digital literacy, but also the ability to create digital opportunities for all.

Women lack access to IT-focused jobs due to economic barriers, cultural biases, and social hurdles. While IT training initiatives exist in the Czech Republic, most options are unaffordable or inaccessible to a large segment of the population, particularly women.
STEM education options are severely limited for primary/secondary schools or vocational education programs. Girls lack access to quality school-based STEM curricula, vocational training, and academic to workforce pathways.

Despite a thriving economy, too many jobs in the Czech Republic remain unfilled. This gap disproportionately affects Czech women and girls with limited work, education, or training prospects— particularly those aligned with their interests and ambitions.

Annual report 2022

Our annual report is not just numbers, but also a reflection on the past year. Our year 2022 was full of change and challenging decisions. We had slowly begun to get used to the “new normal” after the hybrid operation forced by covid-19 while looking forward to for a quieter period when the war in Ukraine broke out. We had been expecting a balanced year, yet another crisis came: another period of uncertainty, inflation and change. But we made it through.
