As Program Director at Code Like a Girl, Samantha Floreani plays a key role in Code Like a Girl’s mission: to provide women and girls with the confidence, tools and knowledge to enter, and flourish in the world of coding.
Sam has a keen interest in the ethics of technology, data protection and the implications of machine learning on society. This led to a previous senior role in information privacy, a current position as a Board Member for the Australian Privacy Foundation and the commencement of postgraduate studies in Data Science.
Recognising the lack of diversity in this space, Sam felt compelled to begin her Code Like a Girl journey back in 2017. Sam has volunteered for many years in the gender equality space and loves breaking down stereotypes to empower women and girls in whichever field they choose – especially coding and tech!
