The Guardian – Ada Lovelace Day 2016 – Philip McMahon and Iona McKendrick – October 20, 2016

On 11th October we celebrated Ada Lovelace day with a day of workshops and inspiring talks, attended by 50 school students from years 9 through to sixth form. The technology industry, in particular software development, has a diversity problem. Even the industry giants such as Apple and Facebook are struggling to get a more balanced workforce, and the guardian is no different, with women making up just 20% of the Digital department.

SheCanCode – CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap – September 26, 2016

On Thursday, SheCanCode  screened highly acclaimed film CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap to 75 techies over popcorn + prosecco at Google Campus in London. The film, which raised more than $86,000 via Indigogo to produce, explores both the explicit and implicit reasons behind the gender diversity gap in the tech industry.  Featuring key policymakers, coders and educators from institutions and organisations like Pinterest, GitHub, ETSY and Black Girls Code, the film investigates the decline in female programmers since the 1980s and talks about the resounding effects of not addressing the 'bugs' that are continuing to discourage women from entering and remaining in the...

Financial Review – Isolated at Harvard to starring at Pixar: women face tough road into tech – Jessica Sier April 4, 2016

Showing how computer code can be a paintbrush of sorts for all kinds of creative endeavours is just one way a new documentary is hoping to inspire young women to take up computer science. "The combination of art and tech is my favourite thing in the world," says Danielle Feinberg, director of photography at Pixar and star of the new documentary CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, a look at the lopsided nature of the tech industry and the increasing need for computer science graduates, particularly women.

ImpactMania – Robin Hauser Reynolds Producer/Director of CODE Documentary – Paksy Plackis-Cheng

Robin Hauser Reynolds, Director/Producer of the documentary film, CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, discusses the influence of women and minorities in technology and how diversity equals innovation. You have been touring the world with CODE? We premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, April 2015, so we’ve been on the road almost a year. I’ve have taken it to the UK, India, all over the United States, in Dublin and France, and then Germany – it’s crazy. It’s actually screened in 15 countries now. We sold the rights to BBC Persia – they’re broadcasting it in Iran. We knew we were making a film that would be of interest in California, and probably New York, about the lack of women and people of color in computer science engineering and...

A Medium Corporation – Shattering Stereotypes: How Unconscious Bias Stands In The Way Of Diversity – The Girls’ Lounge March 12, 2016

Bias is a four letter word. Biases are also prevalent, often unconscious, and necessary to address. From unconscious bias to more ingrained prejudices, they represent unconscious thoughts impacting conscious decisions, and for this reason, we thought it integral to explore biases at The Girls’ Lounge @ SXSW. The panel that we’ve gathered for a live conversation in the Lounge is truly impressive — Blake Irving, CEO of GoDaddy, Allison Scott, PhD, Author and Researcher at the Kapor Center for Social Impact, Jane Margolis, Author, Researcher and 2016 White House Champion of Change, and moderating the panel, Robin Hauser Reynolds, Producer of CODE: Debugging The Gender Gap. They were all gracious enough to sit down with us before the event to talk about diversity, bias and the future of...

WIT- The Millennial Traveller: Girl Code or the Lack Of – Marrisa Trew – March 11, 2016

With feminism to the fore this week following International Women’s Day, Expedia held a private screening of Code: Debugging the Gender Gap, a documentary which served to portray how gender issues are evolving as we delve deeper into the world of technology. Both the film and the panel discussion that followed highlighted some of the critical reasons behind the lack of female engineers, software developers, programmers, and (to use the umbrella term) ‘coders’ in the work force. One myth that was immediately put to rest, it was that women lack the interest, talent, or both in the...
