UniCredit and SheTech launch a Coding Bootcamp for women from 11 to 13 May bringing together professionals and computer science enthusiasts to explore Java Enterprise core technologies and bridge the gender gap in the tech field.
From 11 to 13 May UniCredit and SheTech, the non-profit association which aims to bridge the gender gap in the technology, digital and entrepreneurship sector, proudly present a Java Enterprise Coding Bootcamp for women.
The three-day online workshop is designed by IT professionals and enthusiasts to explore Java Enterprise Edition core technologies as well as the essential concepts of JAVA-based applications, covering both theory and practical examples, and all the main tools the platform provides.
The initiative is free of charge and exclusively dedicated to female JAVA web application programmers with at least 1 year of working experience and to female programmers with some experience or basic knowledge of Java EE technologies.
Monica Rancati, Head of Group Functions/Digital for People & Culture at UniCredit, commented: "We are very pleased with this collaboration, which once again demonstrates our commitment to promoting and supporting female talent and leadership. The initiative is further evidence of the continued efforts of our bank to help accelerate the empowerment of women and also fits perfectly with our Group's broader strategy to support all forms of diversity and promote inclusion. ESG principles are an essential component of our UniCredit Unlocked strategic plan, and we believe that as a bank we also play an important social role, which includes helping to build a more equal and inclusive society. We are strongly committed to increasing the representation of women at UniCredit. At the end of 2021, the percentage of women among the Group's new hires was 58% and the percentage of women in managerial roles was 39%. Furthermore, we aim to bridge the gender pay gap over the next three years and have allocated 100 million euro to reach gender pay par, meaning equal pay for equal work."
