CODE: Screening

CODE’s Director Robin Hauser Reynolds, together with Producer Staci Hartman,  set out to debug the reasons behind the
gender gap and digital divide. For the most part, Silicon Valley availed itself to their inquisition, and with each interview –
whether at Yelp, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Pinterest, Strava, Pandora, GitHub or Pivotal, they learned that the underlying
currents which dissuaded women and people of color from pursuing coding jobs and resulted in the dearth of minorities in
tech, were systemic, pervasive, and complex. Mindsets, stereotypes, clogs in the educational pipeline, startup culture, lack
of role models and sexism all play important roles in this mounting gender, ethnic and economic issue.

CODE raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?
