Barcelona home to first AI training program for women only
On September 26 at 7PM the first AI training program for women only by AllWomen.tech will be unveiled at the ImaginCafé in Barcelona.
Having recently pivoted from being solely a crowdfunding platform under the name Future Funded, the company has rebranded itself as AllWomen and is launching the first AI training program designed exclusively for women in tech, Spanish tech and startup news outlet Novobrief reported on Thursday.
AllWomen now offers an 11-week Artificial Intelligence course and short face-to-face workshops on technological topics such as Chatbots, Blockchain, User Experience, Digital Analytics, Online Advertising and introductory courses in programming, among others.
The Barcelona-based initiative’s aim is to accompany women — and all those who feel identified as women — to develop their professional careers in technology through training, support, and education.
The team is creating a female-led environment that promotes inclusion with a training program designed specifically for women. It will operate from a safe and accessible space where women do not feel they belong to a minority, but are rather the majority.
Co-founders Cecilia Tham, CEO and Co-Founder of Makers of Barcelona; and Laura Fernández, expert in the creation of training programs, came together to create the project with matching goals.
“The need has not changed,” said Fernández in a statement, adding, “the collective of women in the technology sector still needs a boost to increase the figures that indicate that they only represent in 25% of jobs.”
“It’s a figure that drops to 18% in Spain, but this time we want to do it from the training because knowledge is our most valuable asset in a world of constant evolution,” she added.
AllWomen.tech continues the work initiated by FutureFunded in Barcelona at the end of 2017, aimed at boosting and increasing the number of women in the technology sector.
Since then, it has created a community formed by thousands of women, both local and international. AllWomen has held more than 20 virtual and in-person events for women and allies, including the female hackathon SheHacks together with La Caixa, and has carried out selection processes for technology companies such as Red Points, Cyberclick and Clickedu.
Likewise, AllWomen.tech will continue to offer services to companies such as access and hiring of female technological talent, specialized training in customized technology and support for raising awareness on issues of equality for teams.
Through the company’s experience in accompanying dozens of women in their training processes in the STEM sectors (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), AllWomen now becomes the first training campus in the world in Artificial Intelligence and technological specialization for women only.
Crowdfunding platform FutureFunded has just launched its new AllWomen brand under the .tech domain, accompanied by a new service offering for women in the technology sector.
