Women need to learn more about coding and being creative, the head of the Albuquerque Film Office recently told a crowd at a Women in Technology breakfast.
The event at the University of New Mexico’s continuing education building was aimed at empowering women in the business market.
“I think we need to encourage women at a very young age to code and to do advanced coding and to be creative,” Lerner said.
The film office offers tax incentives for potential projects such as gaming and apps.
Another speaker, Leyma de Haro, emphasized the importance of women being part of the technological landscape.
“It’s for gender equality; women should be represented in all fields just like men. Some women view things differently so you can be creative in a different way,” de Haro said.
