WECode 2020

Our Mission

WECode 2020 seeks to promote community and scholarship for undergraduate women in technology worldwide. We aim to empower young women to bridge the gender gap in sciences through concrete initiatives encouraging women’s scholarship of technical knowledge as well as community-building with peers and mentors. We hope for WECode 2020 to produce a team of women engineers not only equipped with a diverse set of competitive technical skills and social perspective, but also a lifelong network that will enable our attendees to innovate, inspire, and impact the technical communities they participate in.
