The insights in this report draw on interviews with 25 coding bootcamps and 7 digital skills programs in 22 countries. The goal is to share insights and strategies from practitioners around the world on ways to recruit and retain women in coding bootcamps. The report also discusses approaches to making labor market linkages with the larger objective of tackling the underrepresentation of women in technology. Despite the potential of training programs/bootcamps to prepare graduates to compete in a changing global labor market, women often participate at significantly lower rates.
