What is UP School?
UP School is an educational technology initiative set up to kickstart young women’s careers in technology by providing them with the technical and soft skills necessary for success.
Why UP School?
We believe that women's rights are human rights.
UP School’s journey started with a search for a solution to one of the most important issues of the 21st century: women empowerment.
According to the Gender Gap Report 2021 by The World Economic Forum, on its current trajectory, it will now take 135.6 years to close the gender gap worldwide. We can not wait that long. UP School is committed to both decreasing the gender gap AND talent gap in the tech sector by training female developers and data scientists.
