What else does the program provide?

Through a combination of on-site visits and live video meet-ups, students will have the opportunity to learn from prominent women currently working in technology. These sessions are designed to be highly interactive, allowing students to have open discussions with each mentor rather than a simple presentation.

What experience is required?

Absolutely none. The program caters for any level of experience, from complete novice to tech experts. Some participants may be more interested in the mentoring and career development aspects while others prefer to focus on the practical experience. It’s completely up to the individual.
