Jan 5, 2017

WOMEN TAKE TECH: The beauty product subscription service Birchbox and coding academy Flatiron School are joining forces to prepare and fund the next generation of female coders. The initiative, called Women Take Tech, is dedicating $100,000 in scholarship for women pursuing software engineering. As part of the scholarship, the two companies will cut the tuition Flatiron School’s online program in half ($750 month compared to $1500) for 25 women.

Started in 2012, Flatiron claims 40 percent of its 2015 graduates were women and earned a higher average starting salary ($74,957) than the overall average for men and women ($74,447).
