The organization has spread to more than 22 cities across the country in aims of improving national digital literacy. Ladies Learning Code established itself in Halifax in 2013. “Our founder at the time wanted to learn coding skills herself, so she looked online and found Ladies Learning Code as something she really wanted to run in the community,” says Liu. Adult workshops cover a variety of digital curating experiences, offering hands-on learning for everything from introductory HTML and CSS, to WordPress, Photoshop and more. They are taught by industry-leading professionals. Despite its name, these workshops are open to all genders. “Our mission is to promote women in tech in society,” says Liu. “I always encourage a man learner brings a lady with them so we can still promote this cause.” Working in technology herself, Liu explains she sees firsthand how underrepresented women are in the industry.
