Girls Who Code
In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. The percent will continue to decline if we do nothing. We know that the biggest drop off of girls in computer science is between the ages of 13 and 17.
We're reaching girls around the world and are on track to close the gender gap in new entry-level tech jobs by 2030. Through our online resources, campaigns, books, and advocacy work - in the U.S. and around the world. Through our in-person programming including our Summer Immersion Program, Clubs, and College Loops. Half of the girls we serve come from historically underrepresented groups, including girls who are Black, Latinx, or from low-income backgrounds.
Girls Who Code is an organization that values diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential to our mission.
