Creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment is one of our top priorities at Fullstack Academy and the Grace Hopper Program.

Throughout the year we work to address the tech gender gap and create opportunities for underserved communities to learn essential tech skills that will help them advance their careers and create impact. We believe that taking action to support education can bring about real systemic change.

Pride Month this year looks a little different—instead of in-person gatherings and large-scale parades, we’re using our laptops and phones to celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQ+ community and recognize the impact they’ve had on the world.

Whether you’re interested in joining a tech affinity group or growing your network, check out the resources below to support you no matter where you’re at in your coding journey and keep scrolling to find the events we’ll be attending and promoting all month long.
