The Future is code: CODE workshops for girls - GIRLS <code2>

Hello from the Careers Team (myself Bec Bromilow and Robyn Smith), 

Over the past few weeks we have both been heading to various Universities around Melbourne hearing about the future of higher education, trends and the future of employment at University Career Practitioner Days.

The reoccurring message is one we're all likely familiar with: coding is a highly sought after skill in lots of industries and is growing rapidly.

Various data indicates females are not as likely to pursue coding as their male peers.
