Partnership with Czechitas

Update Conference proudly supports Czechitas organization.

Czechitas helps women, girls and children to explore the world of information technologies. We teach them to code in various programming languages, test their software, or analyse complex data. We organize workshops and courses on different levels of expertise, focused on particular knowledge or technology. We organize summer IT camps, requalification and evening courses. We inspire and empower new talents for stronger diversity and competitiveness in tech.

Zuzana Kocárová complements the achievements of the Czechitas organization:

In 2015, our founder Dita was ranked among the New Europe 100 challengers, the TOP one hundred innovators from the Central and Eastern Europe, trying to make the world a better place using digital technologies.

In 2016, the European Union acknowledged our work with in the community with the "European Citizen Prize". We were the very first organization within Central and Eastern Europe to receive Google.org prestigious grant to fund our Digital Academy requalification program.

We aim at providing accessible tech education to women in the Czech Republic. Together with Konica Minolta under our joint project #czechitasgoglobal and with our DataGirls series, we also expand to several European cities.

Even other continents know about us. In 2017, we received the SXSW Community Service Award in Texas. We are truly happy about this because it means that our work makes sense world-wide.
