Women Who Code (WWCode), the world’s largest and most active community of women engineers, is proud to announce the launch of our newest local Network in St. Louis, Missouri.
This group will support the local tech community by hosting technical, leadership, and career training events, networking meetups, and hackathons, while providing a gathering place for women engineers in the area to come together and inspire one another. The official launch date of Women Who Code St. Louis is April 30, 2019, with the inaugural event taking place at the Object Computing (OCI) Headquarters Training Lab. Leading the Network will be Directors Nicki Powers, Kianna Reed, and Gina Bremehr, and the group already boasts a membership of over 400 people.
Network Director Gina Bremehr spoke about the launch, “We are delighted to bring Women Who Code to St. Louis. This year, a few cities were selected to bring Women Who Code to their respective cities, and we are very encouraged and excited to be among this group. We are working hard to fill our calendar with presentations from some amazing lady technologists. We are deeply passionate about bringing together women and everyone else who believes in the Women Who Code mission – to inspire women to excel in technology careers. We hope we will see a great turnout from our local community to support and participate in this community.”
Women Who Code Chief Leadership Officer Joey Rosenberg said, “Gina, Kianna, and Nicki are talented engineers who have a real passion for effecting positive change in the tech industry. We’re proud to have them as the Directors of this new Network, and I’m excited to see the impact they can have on the technology community in St. Louis.”
