What is Girls Who Code?
Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization that strives to encourage girls in grades 3-12 to get into the computer science field. The goal of this organization is to redefine people’s perceptions of computer programmers and to disrupt the gender employment gap in the field of computer technology.
The organization was created by Reshma Saujani in 2012 when she noticed that computer science classes were primarily filled with boys. In response to this gender disparity, Saujani created Girls Who Code which is now sponsored by software companies like AOL, Google and Microsoft.
How Does Girls Who
This organization encourages computer science teachers to be instrumental in forming Girls Who Code clubs at their schools. At club meetings mentors teach female students computing skills like programming, robotics, and web design.
