Global Non-profit Upgrades Website to Reinforce Women In Tech Are Here To Stay

Passionate team of volunteers sees groundbreaking new website through to fruition


SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2015 — Women Who Code (WWCode), a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers, recently announced a newly designed website which showcases the breadth of impact the 25,000 member organization has around the world. Spanning more than 50 cities, across 15 countries and awarded non-profit status less than one year ago, the organization has already made waves for women in technology with 80% of members reporting a positive career impact due to the groups education and advocacy efforts.

“An army of contributors from varying technical backgrounds combined forces spending their nights, weekends, and even holidays to help see the project through to fruition,” said Alaina Percival, CEO, Women Who Code. “The result is a beautiful iteration, which appeals to the tech savvy and design savvy masses for an organization that is quickly developing into a worldwide movement.”


The project was led by WWCode Chief Maker, Zassmin Montes de Oca, who drives technical efforts for the non-profit. “Working with a team of talented software developers on a project we feel passionate about is incredible. The team dedicated months of their time – including helping out during nights, weekends, and holidays to make our new site come to life. Our members are the reason we exist and the reason that we are able to continue to push women to the forefront of the technology sector.” Main contributors included Software Developers Vinu Charanya, Amanda Canyon, Linh Bui, Laura Montemayor, Zoe Madden-Wood, Georgia Andrews, Gaby Zamudio, and UX/UI designer Kaitlyn Hova.
