The world is changing and women need versatile digital skill sets. Our vision is for every woman in the world to have a digital skillset that gives them the knowledge, power, and autonomy of steering their own ship.

Economies are shifting. Attitudes are lifting. Jobs are changing.

Who Was Grace Hopper?

Grace Hooper [1906 - 1992]

Grace Murray Hopper (1906-1992) was a pioneer in the field of computer science. She wrote the first compiler and worked on the development of the COBOL language. Code with Grace draws inspiration from Grace Hopper's ambitious career and tenacious personality. 


β€œThe most important thing I’ve accomplished, other than building the compiler, is training young people. They come to me, you know, and say, β€˜Do you think we can do this?’ I say, β€œTry it.” And I back β€˜em up. They need that. I keep track of them as they get older and I stir β€˜em up at intervals so they don’t forget to take chances”

β€” Grace Murray Hopper

Leslee Ryan   Leslee is a bit of a nerd, but in a cool way. Originally a nurse Leslee shot up the ranks into management at a young age. She then went on to do further study to become an ISO Quality Manager and Consultant.  So that's law, nursing and business so far. But wait, there is more Leslee then founded a small business selling organic skincare products and naturally (like her skin care range - boom!)  Leslee has had a desire to learn computer science and in this pursuit has co-founded Coding with Grace - which aims to empower women to code and obtain jobs in tech.  t:  @LesleeeRyan

Nic Ryan   Ok, so Nic is good at maths - or was when you did maths with pen and paper. Of course nowadays it is all computers, which is why he is all over this computer thing like white on rice!  Originally he trained as an actuary before someone sat him down in front of a massive dataset and said 'code this'. Nic has been 'coding this' ever since for banks, insurance companies, startups, consulting engagements, leading teams you name it.  Nic is a data scientist which is something of a unicorn, but he wants to also be an awesome full-stack developer, so a double-unicorn or maybe an alicorn just like his favourite pony Twilight Sparkle.  t:  @nicjohnryan
