Our Mission

Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does

What We Do

We’re building the largest pipeline of future
female engineers in the United States.

Why It Matters

Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future, but fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women.

The Gender Gap

The gender gap in computing
is getting worse.

In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. If we do nothing, in ten years the number of women in computing will decrease to just 22%.

While girls’ participation in computer science ebbs over time, the biggest drop off happens between the ages of 13-17.
