Franklin College is proud to host a screening of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap.
This program is supported in part by the President’s Venture Fund through the generous gifts of the University of Georgia Partners and other donors.
This documentary exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap. CODE raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?
