Hackbright & Intuit care deeply about helping more women succeed as software engineers. We’re excited to announce a special sponsorship with Intuit for women who have taken a career break from tech — the Moms in Tech Sponsorship. The latest findings show that 56 percent of technical women leave the field mid-career. Many put their career on hold to raise children or take care of aging parents, and then they don’t return because technology has raced past them. When these women think about returning to work, we want to help them lean back in to their careers with the most up-to-date skill set and technical abilities. The Moms in Tech Sponsorship will cover part of tuition to Hackbright where these women will be able to refresh their technical skills and learn entirely new ones so they’re well-equipped to rejoin the workforce.
