About E-mma

E-mma is a French association created in 2013 by students of Epitech, who promotes gender diversity in the technological domain, which is almost exclusively male-dominated.

Spread over 13 French cities, E-mma also has an international presence through its offices in Spain (Barcelona), Albania (Tirana), and Belgium (Brussels).

By becoming the bridge between children and computer science, we bring more diversity to the IT community, a crucial aspect of the future.

Through coding activities, we introduce computer science to girls and boys so they can consider entering these fields as well.

With our inclusive approach, we are determined to increase the number of women working in technological fields.

Our Actions

We introduce programming to children and adults between 7 to over 77 years old. Through our different coding workshops and key conferences, we raise awareness on the importance of making technology inclusive for everyone.

E-mma has built a team of 500 female and male software developers, tasked with supervising coding workshops for children as well as adults, and raising awareness on gender diversity in the technology sector through inspiring conferences and coding activities.

E-mma wants to break stereotypes in the technological field by inspiring young girls and boys to potentially pursue a career in the digital sector.

Throughought 2019, the whole E-mma team trained over 20,000 people to programming. Of this large number of participants, 60% were girls and women who received training in various programming languages.

#CodeAtHome

Since the beginning of quarantine, E-mma launched the #CodeAtHome #CodezChezVous initiative, for 8 to 12 years old and 13 to 16 years old children.

The #CodeAtHome initiative is a program supported by the French Secretary of State for Digital, Cédric O, and the French Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Marlène Schiappa. This program proposes online coding activities to children.

Over the 3-months period of quarantine, 1270 girls and boys between 8 and 16 years old participated in this program from home.

We had the great pleasure to train to programming 48% of girls between the ages of 8 to 12 years old and 40% of girls between the ages of 13 to 16 years old.

E-mma Worldwide

E-mma has 16 branches in Europe, including 13 offices in France in the major French cities and in Overseas Territories.

The lack of diversity in technology is a global issue and no country in the world has closed the gender gap in technology. This is why we want to expand our boundaries to more countries in order to reach more girls and boys.

We opened branches in Spain, Albania, and Belgium in 2018/2019, and to continue our international development, we are now working on our new opening in Germany, United States and Africa.

E-mma's headquarters and executive team is located in Paris, and each E-mma regional branch has it's own local E-mma and E-mma IT team.

A regional representative is at the head of each regional branch, and handles the local E-mma team and is the bridge with branches in other cities and countries.
