WebStage Supports Digital Literacy for Women and Youth

OTTAWA, ON – March 31, 2017WebStage, a Target Fuel technology company, is proud to announce its collaboration with Ladies Learning Code, a Canadian not-for-profit organization with the mission to be the leading resource for women and youth to become passionate builders - not just consumers - of technology by learning technical skills in a hands-on, social, and collaborative way.

"Technology and technology related fields offer exceptional opportunities throughout Canada" explains Target Fuel CEO, Chris Corman. "We strongly believe that early education and awareness in digital literacy creates more diversity and stronger teams, leaders, and companies, specifically with respect to more women in technology based roles. We’re proud to support an inspiring group in helping women and our youth across Canada".

As part of the collaboration, WebStage will work with Ladies Learning Code organizers, instructors and students to help foster and deliver programs focused on learning technical skills in an open, supportive and social setting.

"We are thrilled to welcome WebStage to the Ladies Learning Code family" said Melissa Sariffodeen, Co-Executive Director at Ladies Learning Code. "Their generous contribution will go towards supporting the Ottawa Chapter of Ladies Learning Code and will help bolster our efforts to reach women and children with valuable digital skills training in the nation's capital. Local support like that which WebStage is generously providing is essential for building thriving, sustainable Ladies Learning Code Chapters across Canada."
