National Learn to Code Day Promotes Digital Literacy Among Women in Canada This September

National nonprofit Ladies Learning Code has announced the third year of National Learn to Code Day, a Canada-wide initiative designed to promote technology education.

On September 26, 1,200 adult learners will attend simultaneous in-person workshops in 22 cities across the country.

There’s never been more energy around the importance of learning to code, the organization says. It is not alone in holding that opinion.

“National Learn to Code Day promotes digital literacy while helping Canadian women skill-up on important 21st century skills,” says Melissa Sariffodeen, Ladies Learning Code’s co-Executive Director.

Since its inception in 2011, Ladies Learning Code has held over 550 workshops and events and reached over 22,000 learners across the country.
