Quidgest offers software development course to 200 women

Quidgest, through its Quidgest_Academy, joins the International Women’s Day celebrations with a very special campaign that will allow 200 women to leverage their digital skills completely free of charge.

To celebrate International women's day Quidgest offers free course


The training is aimed at female students, professionals from all fields, or those in career transition who seek to learn how to develop technology-based solutions using the Genio platform – a pioneering platform in the automatic generation of software through Modeling and Generative AI, which does not require candidates to have a background in information technology to develop their own digital applications.


The course can be scheduled and taken throughout the remainder of 2024, subject to the availability of Quidgest_Academy.


40 hours, which can be used during the same week or over a broader schedule of up to three months.


This training will be delivered 100% digitally (e-learning).


English, so that women from any part of the world can participate.


With this initiative, Quidgest aims to support women interested in embracing and/or developing a technological career, empowering them and making them agents and protagonists of technological change within the universities, organizations, and communities where they are involved.


    The course has a strong practical component, several tutorial videos with training exercises, and the support of a Genio Trainer who will help answer all the trainees’ questions throughout their learning journey. More advantages and differentiating aspects of the Genio platform here.

Sign up for this initiative by March 15, 2024 and enter the world of technology!*

*The 200 available training courses will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. All applicants will be informed by email whether they have been selected or not. The 200 selected women will receive information from Quidgest_Academy on how they can schedule their Genio course throughout 2024, subject to the availability of Quidgest_Academy.


“This is an opportunity not to be missed! 200 women from any part of the world, with any profession or academic background, have the opportunity to become the software developers of the future and put their ideas (academic, professional, or social and community) into practice through an AI-driven tool that does not require prior knowledge of programming languages or manual coding.
We need women full of ideas and motivated to learn, innovate, and make a difference in the technological world… The coding part should not worry anyone because Genio generates everything automatically. And on a human level, Quidgest has a whole team ready to help, collaborate, and facilitate networking as a gateway to new professional horizons.”

“Recent data from the European Commission remind us that only one in six IT specialists and one in three graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields are women. An imbalance that is not isolated – we can see, for example, that although there is a significant presence of women in the sphere of technological consumption, their representation in technological development falls far short of desired levels. Seeking balance in this field is essential to ensure diversity of perspectives in companies. This diversity is important not just to enrich the work environment and foster innovation but also as a means to combat the gender pay gap, especially in professions related to digital knowledge.
At Quidgest, we are committed to maintaining and expanding initiatives similar to this one that promote this balance. We have already reached the mark of 43% female representation in our workforce – an achievement that fills us with pride and motivates us to inspire other organizations, especially technological ones, to take a more (pro)active role in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.”
