Why Girls Who Code Clubs?

The Problem: Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future — but our girls are being left behind.

Our Impact

Girls Who Code values diversity, equity and inclusion as essential to our mission. We focus our work not only on gender diversity but also on young women who are historically underrepresented in computer science fields.

of girls served come from Historically Under represented Groups.*

* This includes girls who are Black, Latina, and from low-income households.
