Where are the women in the tech world?At a time when the US tech sector outpaces the overall growth of the employment market, Code: Debugging the Gender Gap asks the important question: where are all the women? This revealing doc examines the reasons why there aren't more girls seeking opportunities in computer science and explores the hurdles that play a role in widening this employment gap. Expert voices from the worlds of technology, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry. Code aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding. The screening will be followed by a Q+A with director Robin Hauser Reynolds.
