In 2022, Seidea joined forces with QA and professionals from KPMG and Accenture to support the Cyber Explorers platform. This initiative, led by the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, aims to introduce children to cybersecurity. Through collaborative efforts, we have organised events and activities in schools, reaching over 450 school children.
The goal of Seidea's four year project was to empower Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) girls ages 9-16 in the Bexley area by offering virtual workshops on coding, as well as important skills like creative writing and public speaking. The program also featured talks from successful BME women in the tech industry. In 2021, the program ended with 113 BME girls graduating from the coding club.
