You're invited to join us for a screening of the documentary "CODE - Debugging the Gender Gap", on Friday April 8 at 1PM ET, followed by a panel discussion featuring the Director of the film and women in tech. This event is hosted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in collaboration with Capital One and ABI.DC Community.
CODE exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap. CODE raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code? Watch the trailer.
