Join our Webinar Series

Read about our new webinar series happening throughout November.

Our goal is to create a tech industry that has more women at the table as managers, CEOs, developers, freelancers, and more. We want to create a workforce as diverse as our society.

We have now run 10 amazing web development cohorts and through it, conversations have arisen that were outside the spectrum of the course but that were subjects we knew we wanted to cover! Some of these questions get sent to us on Twitter and email too from people too far to come and see us or unable to join our courses for whatever reason.

So, throughout November, we’re running a webinar series hosted by industry experts. Each webinar will be an hour long and have an audience Q&A. All of them address a question which we’ve been asked.

Firstly though, what is a webinar?

A webinar is an online seminar where you’ll be able to watch a session live. You can see them, they can’t see you. You will be able to type questions though.

How do I join a webinar?

You’ll need to register for the webinar you want to join through the links below. After you’ve registered, we’ll send you an email telling you how to join the live webinar — we promise it’s super easy. You can join as many as webinars as you like for free.

Right, time for the good stuff. Here are our upcoming webinars…
