1 Million Women To Tech is a global online technology education program for women run by ABC Education a Silicon Valley 501(c)3 non-profit educational charity https://www.guidestar.org/profile/47-5525193. It's mission is to offer free coding education to 1 million women.
On Saturday July 14th, 2018 the #1millionwomentotech #SummerOfCode was launched during the Oxford Inspires conference at the University of Oxford.
We planned for 300 women, but a total of 19,951 women and enbies from around the world registered. Thanks to the swift sponsorship and donations of the UN, Facebook Developer Circles, Oxford University, Oxford University Press, GitHub and generous individuals we were able to admit all of them.
