Japanese Women in Computing

Sakiko Yoshida

Yan Fan (Co-lead, CTO of Coding Bootcamp School) and Sakiko Yoshida launched the Tokyo Local Community in February 2018. Since the launch, they provided several types of opportunities for networking and learning new tech and non-tech subjects in Tokyo city.

Since joining this industry, Sakiko has had many chances to expand her capability and to contribute equally based on her various skills. She encourages other females to enjoy tech and to promote women in tech in her country, Japan. Through volunteering at AnitaB.org, Sakiko met many inspiring people and from whom she continues to learn from. Her next goal is for her affinity group to expand their scope to girls who are interested in tech!
