Event description
A morning in cloud computing company Salesforce for senior secondary school girls to explore careers in tech

About this Event

Computer Science is too important to be left up to boys, geeks and nerds! The lack of female participation in Computer Science is a global phenomenon. Although the reasons for this are complex there is a consenus that a lack of understanding of what computing involves, a lack of visibilty of female role models and a perception of computer science being for "geeks" and "nerds" contribute to the problem.

CodePlus is an initiative of the Trinity Access project in Trinity College Dublin. CodePlus seeks to address the issue of underrepresentation by providing support to schools to learn more about careers in computing, One aspect of what we do is to provide talks from female developers, engineers and professionals to girls in Irish secondary schools. Salesforce is a global cloud computing company with a large base in Ireland providing many exciting job opportunities to those with the relevant skills.

On Wednesday the 16th of October we are running a morning event at the Salesforce Dublin HQ in the Central Park business and IT hub in Leopardstown for Transition Year, 5th and 6th Year girls where a panel of professional speakers from the industry will provide a panel discussion on their career experience to inspire and enthuse students. This event is run with the support of the Salesforce.org and the Science Foundation Ireland's SmartFutures programme.

Tickets are free but limited. Light refreshments provided after the event. School bookings limited to 30 tickets per chaperoning teacher (contact grace@bridge21.ie if more needed or for more enquiries)
