A few ladies on the WGBH Digital team have joined other industry females to continue to learn new skills and network through tech-focused women only, sorry guys, Boston local meet-up groups. Both in small groups together and individually we have been attending various courses like CSS Basics instructed by Women’s Coding Collective and networking and getting inspired at meet-up events like Code & Coffee hosted by Girl Develop It . Oh and a cool thing happened where we were mentioned in The Boston Globe.
At WGBH, the public broadcasting station, producers and designers recently took classes in HTML to get a better understanding of how the programming end of their projects work. – Joan Axelrod-Contrada, Boston Globe Correspondent
“Such training helps to create not only “higher quality products for our audiences” but also “a stronger, happier, more inspired, and collaborative culture,” said Alexis Rapo, vice president of WGBH digital.
