New Sarenza Shoes Campaign Shines Spotlight on the Next Generation of Women Coders

New Sarenza Shoes Campaign Shines Spotlight on the Next Generation of Women Coders

To coincide with International Women’s Day 2019, a coding training programme for young women designed to improve gender parity in the digital industries has been developed by French shoe brand Sarenza with Serviceplan France and BECOMTECH.   

For Sarenza, equality between men and women at work is a priority topic: 64% of the company’s employees and 6 of the 10 members of its management committee are women.  

On International Women’s Day on March 8th 2019, Sarenza decided to illustrate this commitment by highlighting the work of BECOMTECH, a French national association whose ambition is to help young women break into the world of digital and computer programming. BECOMTECH promote gender parity in the profession of digital and computer programming and introduce girls to digital and computer sciences at high school and college. 

Serviceplan France created an online film which reveals some of the outdated presumptions that coding is not a profession for women, when every man interviewed automatically presumes the codes he is shown were made by a man. The Sarenza training programme enables girls to learn coding, and paves the way for a new generation of women coders who could potentially change the male-dominated industry in France where only 2% of coders are women.

Sarenza director general, Hélène Boulet Supau, commented: “Women represent only 16% of tech employees. And, although for years many companies and associations have been working to raise awareness, demonstrate and alert people to the fact that there are too few women in the digital business, the results are not tangible enough. Because of the mix of trades, companies are at the end of the journey: the operational change is cultural, and it is everyone's business. And at Sarenza? We have been working for many years to engage and change the mindset about gender parity in employment."
