Our mission, community, and team
Our Mission: Bridging the Gender Gap in the Romanian IT Industry
Girls Who Code Romania was founded out of pure passion for programming on the 15th of February 2014 by Monica Muntean. Girls Who Code Iasi was founded on 17th of April 2017 by Monica Muntean and Raluca Apostol. Our mission is to bridge the gender gap in the Romanian IT Industry by growing the number of Romanian girls and women who will choose and develop or switch to a programming related career.
We provide support to beginner and middle programmer females in order to perfect their coding skills through online and offline programs like workshops, online mentoring, conferences, presentations and meetups. At the same time, we create opportunities for the advanced females in order to develop their programming skills through hackathons, advanced workshops and involvement as mentors in our programs.
If you are an advanced programmer, female or male, and want to support girls and women in their process of learning and developing their programming skills, then you can join us as a Trainer here.
