Susannah Malarkey is the Executive Director of the Technology Alliance, our parent organization – and she’s also a writer for Xconomy. During the holiday break, she wrote a great article about Ada Developers Academy. We thought we’d share!

Why are companies, agencies, and individuals investing in our program? Because they believe we need to address the workforce shortage and gender imbalance in software development. They realize that Ada can make an immediate difference, defining an alternative pathway for women to enter a field that is dominated by men. They understand that given the right opportunities and training, more of the great jobs being created in our tech sector can be filled by the talented women of Washington.

Thanks, Susannah! Read the full article on Xconomy.
