Qwasar is delighted to announce the launch of our first Women's Cohort, starting mid-September, 2022.
Finding quality female software talent is a well-known challenge in industry: companies often specifically request and ask us for female candidates for their positions. There’s an interest for more female candidates, but there also needs to be opportunities for women to learn and grow their skill set to be ready for software jobs.
Emeritus notes, “As a matter of fact, employment for software developers is projected to grow 22% from 2019 to 2029 (according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). However, the biggest challenge the tech industry faces today is talent acquisition across genders.”
In an effort to increase the number of women and representation of women in the tech workforce, we’re launching a Women’s Cohort in September this year. Led by our co-founder and supported by our entire community, the cohort aims to be a fun, encouraging, and challenging environment for women to develop their skills in software development.
