The most Diverse Talent Acquisition Event in BCN

by | Sep 16, 2020 | DEI

Migracode Barcelona and CodeOp acts as a bridge between the demand for skilled people in the tech sector and people with a migration background who are eager to work in the tech industry.

36 students from Migracode Barcelona and CodeOp and 10 call moderators participated in the Covid-safe online event, connecting students to future opportunities in the Tech sector.

One of the main objectives of the event was to involve underrepresented groups in tech, by focusing (among others) on Gender, Migrant and LGBTQ+ communities. All the students involved in the event were coming from one (or more) of these groups and are eager to work as junior software developers

Global {M} are honoured to be a company representative of this event, speaking with the students and learning about their future aspirations.

The academy teaches students HTML/CSS, JavaScript, NodeJS, React and moreStudents were trained in Full Stack Web Development. These students are highly motivated and ready to work.

Training is carried out by instructors from some leading technology firms in Barcelona including Thoughtworks, Travelperk, Travelport and New Relic.Hiring these students is cost-free and will simultaneously create a big social impact.

We strongly believe that everyone deserves the right to follow education, especially those with less opportunities.

A huge thank you to Vincent van Grondelle & Ruth Clarke @ Migracode for inviting us to participate in this great event!
