Girls Who Code (GWC) is a national organization launched in 2012 as a nonprofit organization working to inspire, educate, and equip girls with computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. The aim is to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors by offering computer science education and tech industry exposure to 6th – 12th grade girls throughout the academic year. The organization offers a scalable approach to learning computer science and includes forty curriculum hours paired with project based, group learning, along with exposure to various industries through outings.

Women WantedDespite the wide range of job opportunities in computer science, women remain significantly underrepresented in the field.  Learn what's being done and how you can prepare for a successful careeer.
