Event

Thursday the 3rd of May and Friday the 4th of May, all the partners from the project were reunited in Luxembourg for the last transnational meeting.

At lunch time they all went to the representation of the Representation of the European Commission in Luxembourg for an event called “Women, Coding & Confidence”. 

A light walking lunch welcomed them followed by a speech from Yuriko BACKES, Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Luxembourg. She highlighted the importance of the digital and the place that women have to take in this field.

Then, Marina ANDRIEU, executive director of WIDE, presented the project results of this Erasmus+ project Wow Code 2 Confidence emphasizing on 4 pillars : creativity, learn to learn, employability and entrepreneurship.

After these two speeches, a panel was organised with testimonials from women who have learned coding to make a change in their life.

  • Axelle Feider, CEO and Co-Founder, Orga50 Sàrl
  • Katja Legisa, Digital Brusselles Director, Digital Leadership Institute, one of the project’s partner
  • Sandrine Lagarde, law graduate currently in training with FitCodingjobs

They all agreed on saying that coding is important to view a career change and that it represents the future.

Following this conference, 15 women were able to attend an introduction to HTML and CSS workshop. This two hours workshop allowed the attendees to develop their knowledge in this field and has made them want to carry on the learning.
