A SADA U Technical Empowerment Program

Slash Back


The best cloud and data engineer career training.

HERCloud is an in-house certification program designed to empower women with an understanding of cloud basics and the SaaS business model. Brought to you by the office of the CTO, our learning modules give team members the opportunity to learn from experienced thought leaders within SADA’s organization. The curriculum was developed to foster a more inclusive environment for women in the workplace - for the novice in cloud technology and leaders looking to deepen their understanding of the cloud.

“Though we do need more women to graduate with technical degrees, I always like to remind women that you don’t need to have science or technology degrees to build a career in tech.” 

- Susan Wojcicki | CEO of YouTube
