How Disney is turning women from across the company into coders

🔒 www.fastcompany.com

This is an impressive program that Disney is running to get more women into technology roles.

The CODE in CODE: Rosie stands for Creating Opportunities for Diverse Engineers. The Rosie” part references Rosie the Riveter, the symbol of World War IIs working women; an internal CODE Rosie logo even depicts Minnie Mouse in Rosie’s iconic rolled-up-sleeve pose. In particular, the program pays tribute to the Rosies” who programmed the U.S. Army’s pioneering ENIAC computer back in the 1940s.

It is impressive in its scope and I admire the approach. A program like this could make a difference. 🤔
