CoderDojo NYC has been talking to Coder Dojo mentors from across the globe, about the idea of starting an initiative to get more women and girls involved in CoderDojo.
A Google Hangout has been arranged for 4pm GMT on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013. Interested parties can join the Google Group Mailing List. A link to the Google Hangout will be posted there as well as a link to the recording.
Topics that will be discussed will include how to attract more female mentors; identifying what teen girls like about CoderDojo and how can it be improved; and going beyond traditional tech gender stereotypes.
CoderDojo NYC has achieved a 50:50 gender ratio with both mentors and attendees and will share insights in to the success they’ve had with their first Girls Hack Day.
