We believe that all girls have the interest and ability to learn to code. Our belief is demonstrated in our core values:
To us, being brave is about being resilient, persistent, and ambitious. We set ambitious goals knowing that together, we can achieve them. We bravely take risks, admit and learn from our mistakes, and continue to improve our organization and ourselves. We are optimistic about our goals because, while this work is hard, it’s also possible.
At Girls Who Code, our work starts and ends with our girls. We are committed to designing quality programs and products that reflect the diversity of the girls that we serve. We approach our work with humility, curiosity, and an open mind. Our work equips, inspires and educates girls to use technology to change the world.
Our sisterhood includes all our allies. At Girls Who Code, we’re all working together toward a common vision and we believe collaboration is the key to getting there. We recognize that a diversity of ability, background, culture, experience, identity, status, and opinion makes our products and organization stronger, and we strive to build equitable and inclusive environments. We respect and lift up one another, knowing that our different backgrounds and experiences will help us expand our impact.
We know the quality of the work we do is important. We are committed to providing a meaningful learning experience for all girls that we reach and are dedicated to doing things well — especially as we scale.
Communicating with integrity, compassion and an openness to giving and receiving feedback are the building blocks of a healthy, creative culture. We believe in speaking up, being forthright, and saying what you mean.
