Like every 3-4 months, MigraCode Barcelona is organising JobVersity: The most Diverse Talent Acquisition Event in BCN! The event is open for any tech company that is looking for new tech talent. Hiring our students is cost-free and will simultaneously create a big social impact.
“All-embracing, extensive and comprehensive”. This is how Julián Varela (25, Argentina) describes the new IT Support & Security online course at MigraCode.
Taking psychosocial distress into account is an essential task of MigraCode Barcelona, as many of the students have faced hardships in their past and/or in their current lives. A recent but fundamental implementation to the MigraCode program is psychological support, offered by qualified and professional volunteers.
Like most NGOs, MigraCode has adapted during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, more than ever, teaching technological skills to people from vulnerable groups to increase their chances of employability is vital to the recovery of Spain’s cultural and tech sectors.
ThoughtWorks full-stack developer Elena Raffay joined Migracode as a way to give back to the community. While having to move fully online isn’t ideal, she still enjoys being part of a diverse community of coders working to include historically marginalized groups in tech.
