The First Program To Train High School Girls With Blockchain Skills
Blockchain is meant to lower barriers for people around the world. Yet, in the early days, Bitcoin had a diversity issue: 90% of Bitcoin users in a CoinDesk survey in 2015 were male.
Some people point to the gender issues in the technology sector as the foundation for gender inequality in blockchain. Only about 10% of all computer science graduates are women in the United States. Yet, that number can dramatically change: one university got the ratio as high as 40% in less than a decade by being deliberate and systematic about opening up technology possibilities to women.
