Girls Who Code is singularly focused on closing the gender gap in technology. In 2016, only 26% of the computing workforce were women, and only 5% were Black or Hispanic women. This gap has worsened over the last three decades. If the trend continues, by 2027 only 22% of women will hold positions in computing.
Through our club and summer programs, Girls Who Code teaches 6th-12th grade girls essential computing skills, builds their confidence in becoming engineers, creates a clear career pathway into the field, and provides a supportive network of peers and mentors who help our girls succeed. We began 5 years ago with 20 girls in NYC and now reach 40,000 girls in all 50 states, serving as the largest pipeline of future female engineers in the country.
The gender gap in technology is a challenge that can and must be solved. We will tackle it together with creativity, bravery and teamwork. Read more about our organization’s values and commitment to diversity, and watch our Founder’s TED talk on teaching girls to be brave.
