Unfortunately, even with all the founders and managers of IT companies' desire to achieve gender equality in their companies, the number of women among developers rarely exceeds 30-35%," adds Serhiy Tokarev, STEM is FEM and technology company Roosh founder. "There simply aren't that many female specialists on the market. Therefore, it is important for us not only to teach girls programming but also to attract their attention to technical specialties, to motivate them to connect their lives with technologies."

In total, the organizers choose 15 girls for each course.

"В Україні запустили безкоштовні ІТ-курси для дівчат" - це сексизм по відношення до хлопчиків !
При вступі до інженерних факультетів немає ніяких обмежень за ознакою хлопчик / дівчинка !
