Codella-CareCloud-Partnership

Today, we’re proud to announce an exciting new partnership with CODeLLA, a tech entrepreneurship and coding immersion program for underprivileged Latina girls.

Lack of diversity in the startup and technology sector is a real issue. Biases against women and minorities hinder the potential we can achieve as innovators, builders, and market disrupters. At CareCloud, we are proud of the fact that we employ a diverse workforce, and we feel it’s our duty to make an impact in this area. Ultimately, our goal is to help spark a larger conversation around this topic.

CODEeLLA is an remarkable organization that hits at the intersection of these key issues. It provides a transformational opportunity for young girls by exposing them to real-world startups, female leaders, and a technology-oriented curriculum at a critical age in their development (8-12). By sparking early interest, they are laying a foundation for these young girls to succeed as software engineers and entrepreneurs.

CareCloud and CODEeLLA are creating a long-term relationship that will include mentorship programs with our female engineers and designers, not only through the summer camp, but throughout the entire school year. In addition, we are donating whiteboards and laptops to the organization to ensure that these girls are given the proper resources to be fully immersed in the software development process.

Software has impacted almost every facet of modern life while becoming one of, if not the most, powerful mediums to ever emerge. The technology industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy, with very few signs of slowing down. Thanks to organizations like CODEeLLA, girls are given the equal chance to succeed and thrive in the realities of this new, rapidly-changing world.
