Rewriting the Code
Women & Technology

Join us this year as we explore opportunities at the intersection of technology and the humanities. Our Winter Workshops will introduce the Creative Technology Cohort to the basics of web development and programming in a relaxed and supportive environment.

The Winter Forum will feature keynote speaker Chelsea Barabas, who studies the role of data and algorithms in the US criminal justice system and writes and speaks on gender and diversity in technology. In addition to Barabas, the Forum will bring together speakers who work with technology in the following fields: humanities, museums, and cultural heritage institutions; non-profit organizations; and communications and journalism.

Workshops

Rewriting the Code will hold two workshops in Winter 2019 that will introduce participants to the basics of web development and programming in a relaxed and supportive environment. Apply to join the Creative Technology Cohort and attend the workshops.

Forum

The Winter Forum will bring women to campus to talk about their experiences building tech-related careers in the humanities, museums and cultural heritage sites, nonprofits, and communication fields. Participants will get the opportunity to network, learn about the wide range of tech careers available, and get advice and guidance on their own career goals.

Informal Events

We'll host informal events over the year that bring women from around campus together to talk about their experiences with technology, their career goals, and their interests and passions.
