Code Like A Girl

Join the Code Like A Girl Community

A place for Code Like A Girl writers and readers to interact and support each other to amplify the voices of Women In Technology.

We have noticed that many of our readers and writers connect with each other to collaborate on stories, mentor and support one another, and amplify each other’s voices. We want to foster this and help it grow. In support of this we have created the Code Like A Girl Community, a Facebook Group where you can collaborate, support, and amplify each other.

We believe that if Women In Tech feel they are supported, needed, and championed it will help build confidence and help them combat the sometimes negative environments and behaviours they face in the tech industry.

Us and Them: Affected Peoples vs. Chevron in Canada ~ by Amazon Watch

The latest chapter in the decades-long struggle seeking justice for Chevron’s crimes in Ecuador is taking place in Canada right now. Unfortunately, as the years grind by the issues being debated get further and further away from the substantive problems of environmental contamination and human suffering, and the process becomes stuck in a legal quicksand of Chevron’s design. The hearings before the Ontario Court of Appeals this week were a perfect example of that.

Amazon Watch continues to bear witness to this ongoing perversion of justice, both because we ourselves are a target of Chevron’s attacks, and also because the cynical strategy the oil giant employs is a real and present danger to corporate accountability work everywhere. For that reason we attended the hearings in Toronto this week along with artist and activist Roger Waters, founding member of Pink Floyd. Waters spoke to the media to express his outrage at Chevron’s endless legal maneuvers to escape justice for its crimes.

“It’s a fundamental question of whether corporations like Chevron … should be allowed to use their financial muscle to destroy people with an absolutely vital claim to reparations for damages that were caused to them over many years,” Waters said before the hearing. “The way Chevron has behaved here is against everything that any of us might believe society ought to be like.”
