Code Rush Calls

20th October 2021, Kathmandu

After the huge success of their 1st National level fellowship in Nepal, Code Rush is back again with ‘Code like her Fellowship program-2021’. The program is organized by Code Rush in association with Kina, targeted mainly to provide industry-focused training programs to recent IT/ Engineering graduates.

Code Rush, a female-led IT company in Nepal was established to support the digital transformation of other businesses through consultation, website development, and digital marketing by employing only female staff.

With an objective to bridge the gap between the technology sector and the participation of women in the industry, Code Rush aims not only to increase female participation in the industry but also help them thrive. To this date, Code Rush has conducted multiple events, programs, competitions to provide a headstart for women to excel in their careers.

The first fellowship incorporated 16 females from all over Nepal, most of which are currently employed in reputed companies of Nepal as Software Engineers.

Astha Sharma, Founder, and CEO of Code Rush mentioned that “ I represent 10% of the females in the class, which is true for most of the engineering colleges. Even though the number of girls pursuing technical fields is increasing in Nepal, the retention rate is still low due to the challenges like pressure to start a family, career sacrifices,  and a lower average age of marriage than men. The only way to disrupt and change these facts is to provide women with a head start early on.”
