Workshop details Beginners


Kats Conf is delighted to announce Coding Grace and Workday are partnering together on an Allyship workshop. This event is open to everyone and is free to attend.

What does it mean to be an "ally"? Why do we need them?

We'll provide an overview of the principles on diversity and offer practical steps that can be taken to curb unconscious bias and be effective allies in the workplace.

About Coding Grace

Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
