I'm excited to announce that my global organization "Sisters Code," will launch this summer in Detroit in partnership with Microsoft Corporation! Sisters Code's mission is educate, empower, and entice women (including ALL ethnic/socio-economic groups) ages 25 - 85 to explore the world of coding and technology. I am offering a "weekend website warrior" program where the participants will learn to create a website in two days. We will also offer a "computer 101" class the day before, for those who need the basics. We will also offer: advanced classes, hands-on experience opportunities, technology career assistance and STEM News!
Although Microsoft is sponsoring the initial event (which will be free for the participants,) I need your help! I am putting together a "curriculum" advisory team and need the following expertise:
1. Two Web Developers with expertise in HTML and Java Script
2. One or Two Graphic Designers
3. Someone with expertise in instructional/curriculum design
I believe this dynamic team could meet a few times, and create an amazing program - so it won't take up much of your time!
I am going to open up registration for the pilot (held in June) and the launch (held in August), so let me know if you or someone you know may be interested as the classes are limited to 20 women. ***We already have interest from corporations and organizations in other states and countries, so we will need trainers willing to travel and teach***.Will keep you posted on that!
This is going to be an amazing - please consider joining the movement that will "transform lives!"
Let me know if you have any questions!
