We teach girls to code to close the gender gap in technology

Story

The gender gap in computing is getting worse.

In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. The percent will continue to decline if we do nothing. We know that the biggest drop off of girls in computer science is between the ages of 13 and 17.

Girls Who Code does more than teach girls to code, they prepare them to thrive and lead in the tech workforce.

Girls Who Code values diversity, equity and inclusion as essential to their mission. They focus our work not only on gender diversity but also on young women who are historically underrepresented in computer science fields.

NetHackathon is an event that we run each Spring and Fall where 24+ people stream NetHack on Twitch for over 48 hours continuously. For the schedule and more information go to https://nethackathon.org

About the charity

Serving girls 3rd grade up through college, Girls Who Code has reached 450K students through our free programs in the 50 states & in the UK, Canada, & India. We do more than teach girls to code: we teach them to be brave & to persist. Above all, we connect them to one another in a Sisterhood.
