Women's IT training courses aim to support gender equality in Latvian industry

The IT company “Accenture” is launching a women's IT training course, reported LSM's Latvian service on July 8.

The company's Training Coordinator Ieva Bogdane stated that the company wants to support gender equality. Therefore, in order to help more and more women start their career in the industry, masterclasses of the “Java” and “Microsoft” programming languages will be taking place this year. 

The masterclasses are free and will run until August 9.

Bogdāne revealed that the company strives to attract more women women into the IT industry regardless of age and previous experience. “It's a great opportunity to start discovering the IT world without prior experience, to gain basic knowledge and continue developing further,” said Bogdāne.

“Accenture” sees a lot of potential in women, although the women themselves often underestimate their abilities. “It's a great way to lure them into the IT industry, so that they could try and realize that it's actually very interesting, that they can do it. And there are innumerable opportunities for working in the industry – from a programmer to a data analyst or consultant,” said Bogdāne.
