Support New Talent in IT
The number of IT professionals is extremely low. And it will get worse. With the current rate of technological advancements, the world will be short of about 5.5 million IT experts by 2020. There is no way men can do this alone. It's time for women to discover the world of IT and to have a chance to show what they can do.
Help us save the IT world. Raise new programmers starting in elementary and secondary school and employ talented IT women from our community.
No Diploma Needed
Only university graduates succeed? No way. Studies show that more than 42 % of IT professionals don’t have a diploma and learned everything they know all by themselves. And they managed to get as far as those with an official technical education. Let's build on that.
In the last five years, we have held more than 400 courses and lectures on programming, web development, data analysis, computer graphics and digital marketing. We've helped employ hundreds of women in IT positions and created a community of more than 16 000 people who support us.
We stay in touch with the participants of our courses. We provide a helping hand in their career growth, hold soft-skills workshops and provide individual career coaching. We regularly send them newsletters with job offers from our partners, news about the partner companies, the current IT market and news outside the world of Czechitas. We connect the companies and our talented graduates and recommend them further to all the members of our community
We also target those who are only just getting ready to enter the job market. We organize events aimed at sparking interest in the STEM fields for girls to show them that IT can be a great choice for everyone.
