WordPress Basics – (Online Women 18+)

August 6 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

FREE

This workshop is for people who have a product or service that they are ready to share online. We’ll explore the importance of having an online presence, then walk through creating a WordPress site and adding content to your website.

This program is designed for beginner-level computer users.

Who is this for?

  • “I’m curious about tech and code in general”
  • “I am a complete beginner when it comes to coding”
  • “I have some coding skills but I’m looking to try my hand at something new!”
  • “I have financial barriers that make it hard to pay for classes and training”
  • “I’m not sure if I belong in tech— I wish I saw more people like me leading this industry!”

This event is for women in Canada, designed in a way that seeks to explicitly welcome cis women, trans women, and those outside the gender binary who feel comfortable in women-centered spaces.

We believe that addressing the gender gap in tech is just one part of building digital equity. A more just and equitable future for technology in Canada means building programming that supports, empowers, and equips all learners who historically have been—and continue to be—underrepresented in tech, particularly Black, Indigenous and other Racialized learners, people in low-income communities and newcomer learners.

If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to have you learn with us.

Prerequisites:  None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
