Women Who Code DC is seeking a trio of new directors to lead programming and partnerships.
According to Network Director Lauren Jacobson, the volunteer roles will complete a five-member leadership team for the local chapter of the nonprofit that seeks to empower women to seek out careers in tech. The openings for the roles come as current leaders are moving on, and the chapter is seeking to expand.
“We’re looking for people that are interested in helping us deliver programming and supporting our mission to empower women in tech,” Jacobson said. Experience running events is a plus, as well as enthusiasm to be an ambassador to the community, Jacobson said.
