BraveCamp Wrap Up: 2019

July 15-19th, young women from high schools across Indianapolis gathered at KSMC for BraveCamp Indy - a fun week packed full of exploration and learning around coding, empathy, community challenges, and careers in technology. Brave supports curriculums that facilitate the campers learning how to apply technology to solve challenges in addition to understanding the broad spectrum of opportunities to pursue a tech career. Hearing from two panels of women in leadership roles in tech careers and receiving instruction from a number of professionals throughout the week, helps to open their eyes to the possibilities available to them.

In order to empower young women as leaders in technology, they need to understand all of the different ways that is possible today, and all of the different roles available - technical and not - related to technology and running a technology company. Why did our employees pursue careers in tech? It’s different for everyone, but curiosity and a desire to solve problems is found across the board.
