At Astreya, innovation is in our DNA. We thrive on pushing boundaries and embracing new challenges. But we know that true innovation flourishes in a diverse and inclusive environment. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our strategic partnership with Girls Who Code (GWC), a dynamic nonprofit that’s making waves by closing the gender gap in technology. Let’s dive into the inspiring world of Girls Who Code and how Astreya is championing this cause with heart and dedication.
