UniCredit and SheTech launch Coding Bootcamp for women

A workshop for female programmers designed by professionals and computer science enthusiasts focused on Java Enterprise core technologies

 

 

UniCredit and SheTech, the non-profit association with the aim to bridge the gender gap in the world of technology, digital and entrepreneurship, are pleased to present the Java Enterprise Coding Bootcamp for women from 11 to 13 May.

 

This is a three-day online workshop that explores Java Enterprise Edition core technologies, held from 5:30 to 8:00pm each day. The bootcamp has been designed by IT professionals and enthusiasts with the purpose of exploring the fundamental concepts of JAVA-based applications, covering both theory and practical examples, and all the main tools the platform provides.

 

The workshop is free 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. It also fits perfectly with our Group's broader strategy to support all forms of diversity and promote inclusion."

"The initiative - she continued - is further evidence of the continued efforts of our Bank to help accelerate the empowerment of women. 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 euros to arrive at gender pay parity, meaning equal pay for equal work."

 

Silvia Fanzecco, Community Manager at SheTech, said: "Thanks to this partnership we hope to give a concrete opportunity to all those women who want to grow and deepen their knowledge in the world of programming and encourage them more and more to train and pursue a career in these areas where the gender gap is still present today. The work done together with a partner like UniCredit is essential to transform the tech world into an increasingly meritocratic and inclusive sector".u
