The CODE documentary 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?

The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed.

We welcome both men and women, and academics from undergraduates to professors.

Please note we are aware that this event falls outside of Athena SWAN core hours. We strive to provide events that fulfill the Athena SWAN criteria but are also aware that longer events in the middle of the day can be very intrusive to working schedules and therefore try to have a mix of both lunchtime and evening events. Our next event on June 17th will be a lunchtime panel discussion Experiences of getting to the top in academia. If you are interested in a repeat screening of CODE during Athena SWAN core hours, we are happy to organise this, please email us so that we can gauge interest.
