Nurul Jihadah Hussain

The Codette Project



In December 2015, Nurul Jihadah Hussain founded The Codette Project, a non-profit ground-up initiative to improve access and opportunities for minority/Muslim women in tech. The Codette Project runs classes, workshops, panels, networking sessions and social events regularly, including Singapore’s only women's hackathon. In 2018, she was selected as one of 115 global community leaders as part of Facebook's inaugural Community Leadership Programme. She wants to create better communities, networks and opportunities, and to diversify what success means in society – to prove that success can look like anyone.
