The Codette Project is a non-profit ground-up initiative that aims to get more minority/Muslim women into technology. The Codette Project is working towards long-term economic change for minority/Muslim women through developing tech skills, building a collaborative community as well as reclaiming narratives of success to include minority/Muslim women’s stories. The Codette Project runs classes, workshops, panels, networking sessions and social events regularly, including Singapore’s only women's hackathon.
