Your People Are Your Power Partner with Code Your Future
Company director, Gina Buckney, was delighted to host the Code Your Future event in encouraging their students to stay motivated in times of challenge or adversity. Code Your Future is an organisation that values giving everyone opportunities to thrive by equipping students with key life skills to enter the tech industry. The company is a non-profit organisation that trains people to become web developers, emphasising collaboration and product development through technology. Graduates from Code Your Future have found themselves working for the Financial Times, BBC, STV, Ticketmaster and start-ups like Adzuna, Sensible Object and WeGotPop. Code Your Future also hires graduates and has partnerships with Capgemini, the West Midlands, Amif and The Federation in The North West, Rome, The Honeycomb Works, Airtime and Slack. Code Your Future has Headquarters based in London, Manchester, Rome and Glasgow.
Gina quoted, ‘I was delighted to present for such an incredible organisation. I started my career in tech, and it’s opened so many doors for me. I have so many stories to share in this space; it was a no-brainer to me. During the presentation last night, I found this group of individuals like sponges, willing to learn and understand the keys to success. You couldn’t ask for a better audience than that. Fully engaged and full of questions. It was my pleasure to present at this event’.
In an interview about how coding changes lives, Code Your Future commented that ‘learning these tech skills can open many potential job opportunities and give everyone the absolute best chance of success. They care about modern workplaces and work environments. The refugee crisis in 2015 hit home hard for the Company Director of Code Your Future Germán; he knew he needed to come up with a better solution. Despite coming from strong academic backgrounds, many refugees find it difficult to find work outside of cleaning, sewing and repairs. Coding gives people skills that are highly sought after in the job market without spending years training. Germán wanted to question the social inequality and enjoys meeting new people and networking with individuals from different cultures and backgrounds.
Germán believes in accommodating employees from different backgrounds that Tech companies should be aware of the industry’s biases and work to dismantle them to the best of their ability. Code Your Future values openness as well as transparency. Germán advises that ‘It’s so important that companies know exactly what kind of organisation that they want to be’. He encourages “soul-searching” for brainstorming where companies can improve and remove the obstacles needed to be as inclusive as possible.
