Andra Morariu - Project Manager
I am the coordinator of the Marketing team at RINF. I am responsible for marketing strategies, coordination of campaigns and I also work closely with the recruitment managers in order to develop employer branding strategies. RINF offers me a flexible work environment where I can try out my ideas and where I am challenged constantly.
The GOP Academy project is very important to me because it started from a real need : that of supporting the girls that are just beginning their careers in a very competitive field that is dominated by men. The GOP team formed naturally because my colleagues and I really believe in this initiative and we are working together to offer the participant girls the best learning opportunities.
I work at RINF as a Marketing Specialist and Graphic Designer. I am passionate about marketing and RINF is a good place for me to learn constantly.
The Girls Oriented Programming project is very dear to me because I saw it grow from the state of idea to implementation. I think it is an amazing opportunity for girls that are passionate about programming because it encourages them to take action and get out of their comfort zone.

What is blended learning?
Blended learning is the process of mixing different styles of learning through physical and virtual resources. It can be achieved by creating a variety of learning tasks and activities using technology, instructors and peer learning.
The four types of learning are:
- Theoretical - through courses and theoretical classes
- Practical - the development of an app by the end of the project
- Reflexive - through exercises and challenges during the courses
- Social - by sharing with a group

More and more girls are graduating from technical universities and are choosing a career path that until recently was dominated by men. This fresh and quite unique generation has different life principles and a certain drive that is unlikely to be found in the past generations.
We decided to set up this Academy because we understand the values of the girls of our generation and we share their courage, their wish to be successful, and their wish to learn and grow constantly.
We work at RINF, an entrepreneurial company that is growing through us, supports our creative initiatives and understands why this Project is so relevant for the next generation of IT woman. We have around 300 young, dynamic colleagues with business, architecture, planning and app development skills that share the same areas of interest as us.
Why do we want to invest in a program dedicated to girls?
Because we cherish team work and from our experience we noticed that mixed gender teams are more productive, more efficient, more stable and better connected.
