Challenge

At a time when the public and private sectors are struggling to create jobs, the technology sector is struggling to fill innumerable open positions. And while youth are struggling to meet the demands of today's job market, it is women that are almost exclusively left behind. Today, just 0.3% of high school girls express interest in studying computer science, and only 0.8% of women graduating from college receive a degree in computer science.

Solution

Girls Who Code works to inspire, educate and equip young women with the skills and resources to pursue academic and career opportunities in computer science.
Girls Who Code has one mission: To create gender parity in the computer science and technology workforce. Since our founding in 2012, Girls Who Code has developed a new model of computer science education designed to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the skills to succeed in both academic and professional careers in technology.

Long-Term Impact

In 2014, GWC will reach 3,000 girls through the expansion of our Clubs and Summer Immersion programs, each of whom will graduate equipped with the hard and soft skills necessary for success in computing. Through their pursuit of academics and careers in computer science, these women will fill the tech industry's talent pipeline and contribute to the achievement of gender parity in the sector.
