There are many women who have started successful careers in tech who choose to put their career on hold to dedicate more time to their children and families.
When these women think about returning to work, we want to help them lean back in to their careers with the most up-to-date skill set and technical abilities.
The Facebook Moms in Tech Sponsorship will cover the full $12,000 tuition to Hackbright Academy, a 10-week software engineering training program in San Francisco, where these women will be able to refresh their technical skills and learn entirely new ones so they’re well-equipped to rejoin the workforce.
Candidates for sponsorship should be:
- A mother
- A former tech professional
- Intending to return as a technically hands-on lead, manager, or director*
Deadline to apply for sponsorship is 11:59pm PST on Friday, May 17 for the Summer 2013 class at Hackbright Academy. Please forward widely! *
