Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code teaches girls to code and program, with the goal of increasing the number of computing jobs held by women (the number is currently just 25%). The organization’s efforts reach 90,000 girls in all 50 states. Those efforts include lesson plans for teachers to show girls examples of successful women in tech, clubs for third to fifth graders (where research shows their interest is the highest), and programs to sustain interest in the topic for college-aged women. So far, the organization’s graduates are majoring in CS and related fields at 15 times the national average.
