For more women in the IT sector.

Academia Geek is seeking for women interested in Web Development training to fulfill their goal of connecting with a job opportunity in the Technology sector.  

Sara is an example of this, she came to our Bootcamp with the dream of changing her life and the life of those around her, transforming the future through programming. 

 “Last year I made the decision to give my professional life a new direction, and I found in Academia Geek the perfect opportunity to do so. My experience in Academia Geek was very enriching, not only at a technical level, but also in a personal level, they have an exceptional side to side support and job placement, which is an essential because you leave the academy to the labor market."  

Since 2019, Academia Geek has trained 215 people, 68 of them are women and 42 are employed in the technology sector, reducing the existing gender gap in the sector and generating more opportunities for women to enhance their skills in the field. In Latin America, only 30% of women are part of the TI industry.  

Sara finished her training at the Bootcamp and only 3 weeks later she signed her contract as a Junior Consultant for a national IT company.  

“The expectations that remain in the future are showing the results of this training, to carry the name of Academia Geek proudly, and keep the professional and academic growth.”
