This ones for the ladies. $5,000 grants from Etsy for female programmers needing financial assistance to attend 2012 Hacker School:
Last September, three out of 96 employees in Engineering and Operations at Etsy were women, and none of them were managers. Talking this over with others here, we thought that Etsy — which supports the businesses of hundreds of thousands of female entrepreneurs through our marketplace, which sells a majority of all items to women, and which already has many talented and amazing women working for the company — should be one of the single easiest Internet companies at which to correct this problem.
Fantastic news! Thanks Etsy for recognizing this problem and helping to support a solution! Please share with your female friends interested in entering the engineering field.
