Girls Who Code

Program Description

Girls Who Code's mission to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a programmer looks like and does by providing girls and non-binary students with the opportunity to explore coding in a fun and friendly environment of peers and role models where students learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Specifically, students learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis of all programming languages. GWC aims at addressing the role historical and institutional barriers, particularly racial bias and discrimination, play in the widening gender gap in computer science and who has access to opportunities in computer science and technology. Girls Who Code focuses not only on gender diversity but also on young women who are historically underrepresented in computer science fields.
