Apple Launches Training Program for Female Programmers

By InHerSight

Apple has announced its plans for a training program for female entrepreneurs and programmers. The company has been criticized for its notorious lack in diversity—only 23 percent of Apple’s employees were female in 2017—but it has vowed to address the absence of women in tech.

Starting in January, female entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to attend two-week long training sessions at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. Apple hopes that this initiative will foster higher interest and retention rates of women in the tech field. CEO Lorraine Hariton of Catalyst, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing in the workplace, believes the camp is "a great step forward. There a lot of talented women in technology. Hopefully, this helps set a tone for the entire industry."
