CODE: TWO YEARS LATER – Sponsored by Smart Solutions


In 2015, Accelerate Madison brought filmmaker Robin Hauser to Madison for an exclusive sold out Wisconsin screening and discussion of her new documentary, CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap. The acclaimed film explores the dearth of American women and people of color in the field of software engineering and the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide.

Now, two years later, we continue the conversation to discuss progress being made in Greater Madison and challenges still to overcome. Joining the conversation from California will be Robin Hauser to share reaction to the film as well as introduce her latest work, Bias.
