One part of being at Epicodus is making it a place where everybody can feel like part of our class's community. Before class starts, read this article about the experience of a black woman after 13 years of working in tech. If you're a person of color, a woman, or another minority, you might find it helpful to hear about her experience. If you're not a minority, use it as an opportunity to better understand how it might feel to be in that position, and what you can do to make everybody in our class feel like they fit in.
We at Epicodus strongly believe in inclusion. The tech industry has traditionally not been a very diverse place and we are committed to changing that. Learn How to Program includes lessons on important topics ranging from diversity and equity to preventing microaggressions. They are an important part of our curriculum and we ask all students to take them as seriously as learning how to code.
