CODE 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 code?
CODE is a relevant and timely feature-length documentary which aims to explain why more American women and minorities are not pursuing careers in computer science, despite lucrative job opportunities and high demand for coders.
Many factors contribute to this dearth, including cultural stereotypes, lack of role models, limited access to computer science education, sexism and socioeconomic barriers. Consciously and subconsciously, women and minorities feel they do not belong in programming despite their aptitude for the field.
CODE documentary explores how technology would be different if a more diverse field of programmers coded the applications and devices upon which society depends.
