In 2013, the millennial population in Spain was experiencing a whopping 55% unemployment rate. Our founders launched the first Ironhack campus in Madrid, aiming to change the status quo in the education system.
Six years later, we are the leading tech school with 9 international campuses and have changed the lives of over 5000 people around the globe.
In 2018, only 25% of the students in STEM undergraduate programs were women. Our biggest role models in entrepreneurship and tech are still mostly men and if we look at it from the professional point of view, 70% of the jobs are currently held by men in the tech industry in Europe.
Ironhack wants to fight the current gender gap by creating an equal and accessible tech educational system. We believe tech has no borders, tech has no gender, tech has no age.
The advantages of working in tech are infinite. Salaries are 30% higher than in other fields, the unemployment rate is almost at 0% and you can enjoy remote and flexible schedules. Every day, technology is making a big impact in our lives and in society. As a tech school, we want to give our best committing to the cause:
We want to increase the percentage of women in the tech industry with a 10% scholarship for our Web Development and Data Analytics bootcamp.
Providing space and a voice to women in the tech industry while helping to create new female role models.
Establishing partnerships with tech companies internationally and nationally with the objective of fighting the gender gap in the digital industry.
The "Algorithm is Female" is a growing community that focuses on empowering individuals regardless of their nationality, gender or age. We are celebrating Women's Month with a series of events to connect tech and innovation with a growing community that believes in fighting the gender gap.

I don't think there is an industry "for men." What is really important is to stop making gender differences and fight for women to pursue what they like and achieve their goals.
General Manager Ironhack Paris
We don’t need to have hope to understand that the future in tech is female. We must be that hope and foster it now and always.
Data Scientist & Engineering at Ironhack
I learned that it is completely fine to feel uncomfortable most of the time. Uncomfortable makes you move, makes you grow. A new career or in general a new opportunity in life doesn’t always come when we feel ready to embrace it. New opportunities are risky and challenging, but they will take out the most and the best from you.
Web Development Curriculum Manager
I believe that the power in re-shaping the current landscape lies mainly within ourselves and how much we engage to drive changes. We tend to underestimate the impact we can have if we understand the problem and unite forces to raise a voice ALL together. Education, self-value, inclusion and endurance are some of the key factors that foster the odds of diminishing the gender gap.

Outcomes Manager at Ironhack Mexico
More than anything, I believe in helping people grow and breaking down barriers together. That is why I am happy to work together with amazing people on the #TAIF initiative and spread the word that tech should be open to anyone. In my eyes: the more you deviate from the status quo, the more interesting your story gets.
