Liberty Latin America has joined together with the Society of Women Coders to launch an initiative aimed at empowering the next generation of women leaders in technology fields.

The partnership will provide the opportunity for 800 young women across the Caribbean and Latin America to participate in a 20-week virtual course focused on digital literacy, web development and coding skills.

This effort is part of Liberty Latin America’s on-going commitment to pursue greater equality, diversity and inclusion.

Kerry Scott, Chief People Officer, Liberty Latin America, said: “Creating opportunities for young women to learn more about technology and pursue careers in STEM fields is an investment in our future.

“Through our collaboration with the Society of Women Coders we are helping to train the next generation of leaders, providing a valuable learning opportunity, and equipping young women with the knowledge, skills and access that will serve them well into the future.”

Kavya Krishna, Co-founder and CEO of the Society of Women Coders, said: “Through our work around the world, we have seen first-hand the impact that can be made in communities by empowering women and teaching them digital literacy skills.

“This program provides not only technical training, but offers mentorship, leadership skills and networking that will be beneficial long after the course is completed.”
