Rupa Dachere

Code Chix
Founder & CEO
Bay area, CA
Rupa Dachere is the Founder and CEO of CodeChix.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, promotion and mentorship of women engineers. Creator of PiDoorbell (circa 2012 on the first Rpi) and entrepreneur, she is an FTE and holds Advisory roles at the Stanford GAP-For-Good program and the Dept. of Computer Science, University of Colorado, Boulder.

Rupa started CodeChix as a grassroots group in her living room in 2009 to address the needs of women engineers in industry and academia and grew it into a non-profit organization with a focus on the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. She self-funded CodeChix, worked on it on weeknights and weekends and hopes to inspire other women engineers to follow their dreams and passions while being financially stable and independent.

Rupa is the recipient of the IEEE Meritorious Award for Informal Education and the Anita Borg Institute’s Pass-It-On Award. Rupa did her Computer Science studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is an active technical speaker at conferences like Open Source Summit, PyCon, OSCON, USENIX, Silicon Valley Code Camp, Grace Hopper Conference and others. Her dream is to one day have parity in the number of female and male engineers in academia and industry.
