Technology education for Canadians.

We design, deliver, and partner on technology education for Canadians and run programs for Ladies, Kids, Girls, Teens and Teachers. Our educational experiences cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, Responsive Design, Photoshop and more. They are especially popular and successful because of the 4:1 ratio of learners to volunteer instructors at every workshop, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the technology and startup communities in our Chapter!

“I've gotten involved with LLC mainly because I believe in empowering females in a heavily male dominated industry. Due to lack of gender diversity, many females have been intimidated to pursue not only a career but even education in the field. A few years ago my colleague (a rockstar and female developer) wanted to make some changes to that fact and started working with LLC. Since then I really enjoyed the progression and results the program generated. This is a great format different from traditional education for ladies to build the necessary foundation and understanding to this industry and I will continue to support it.”

“I love to share knowledge, and encourage other not to be scared of tech and coding. I know how important mentors and learning organization were to my entry into the industry, so I really want to make sure I pass on that welcome and knowledge to others.”

“I got involved with GLC because I believe that young girls should have the opportunity to develop a passion for technology - by 'doing' rather than by just 'watching'. Coming from a software engineering background myself, there were very few women and I'd like to see more women explore careers in the sciences and engineering. GLC is actively contributing to that mission, and providing a positive framework for change. I have really enjoyed my mentorship with GLC so far; seeing the girls come together at the end to present their projects is quite fulfilling. Not to mention, who doesn't like warm fuzzies?”
