Giving back from PIPELINE Conf – donations to Stemettes and CodeYourFuture

Summary: we’ve donated the remaining money from PIPELINE to Stemettes and CodeYourFuture, helping to widen access to coding and software engineering.

   

At PIPELINE Conference we’ve always had a strong focus on building community and widening access to software development. We’re therefore pleased to be able to donate all the remaining money from PIPELINE Conference to two excellent organisations doing great work in helping to broaden access to coding and software engineering: Stemettes and CodeYourFuture.

Stemettes is an award-winning social enterprise working across the UK & Ireland and beyond to inspire and support young women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths careers (known collectively as STEM).

CodeYourFuture is a non-profit organisation supporting refugees with the dream of becoming developers. In their journey of interrupted lives, unfinished studies and integration challenges, many asylum seekers and refugees yearn to update their tech skills, but lack learning opportunities. We want to change this.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make PIPELINE Conference so successful over the years to enable us to make these donations.
