About the Film
Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.
We are asking people to pay for tickets in order to cover the cost of the screening. However we appreciate that not everyone who would like to see this film is able to cover the cost of a ticket. With this in mind we are offering a number of free sponsored tickets to members of groups typically under represented in the tech industry who would otherwise be unable to attend. If you would like to apply for one of our free tickets please use the 'contact' option below.
If you would like to be a sponsor please select a sponsor ticket. This will enable an individual of our choosing from an under represented group in tech who would not be able to attend otherwise to attend the screening for free.
There will also be drinks and nibbles provided and chance to chat afterwards with fellow attendees.
