"Feeling the so-called gender deprivation that sets in over time when you’ve been working in tech surrounded by bros, Wilcox started getting involved with nonprofits like Girls Who Code. It had a profound impact on her. “I’d never been around that many women in tech in my life, even though these were young high school and middle school kids,” she said. It later inspired her to start Orlando Lady Devs a female developer Meetup that has been going strong since the summer of 2016."

Yet employers still look for people with college degrees, who only make up about one-third of the entire workforce.” Fuller explains it with a fishing metaphor. “When you start up-credentialing your jobs you’re doing the equivalent of rowing your boat over to this tightly crowded part of the pond. Maybe there are fish elsewhere.”
