CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap – Girl Code screening at Accenture
Since it came out in 2015 this screening was on top of our wish list for Girl Code! And Lisa from Accenture made the dream come true! Last Monday we screened the documentary ‘CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap’ with Accenture at their office. MOVIENIGHT!!!1!!1!
It was a great film. And if you know people who don’t really see the problem or are blind for the sexism that takes place in the developer’s world: show them this film. It will save you a lot of explaining!
We started off the night with some drinks and pizza and after watching the movie we discussed some themes around this topic. Like: Will a quota help? Should we retrain women to code within businesses? And did you experience the sexism which was showed in this movie? You can imagine this was a seriously interesting discussion. Thanks Lisa and Accenture for making this screening possible!
