Support Girls Who Code in 2018 @GirlsWhoCode #GivingTuesday


Support Girls Who Code in 2018 (video) –

Do something powerful today:
Today is the global day of giving. What better opportunity to stand with our movement to close the gender gap in technology than by donating before midnight this #GivingTuesday?
Our Sisterhood is a diverse community of students, alumni, parents, and volunteers who come together to support young girls in developing their tech skills. Our digital visual album, called Sisterh>>d, celebrates these young women driving our most transformative moments.

Support our movement of over 90,000 girls across all 50 states. Right now, in a room of 25 software engineers only 3 are women. Our vision is to bridge this gender gap by building the largest pipeline of future female engineers. We are on track to achieving gender parity in entry level computer science jobs by 2027, but we can only achieve this with your help.

You have the resources to help close the gender gap in technology.  By engaging your network of you can help inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities and become change agents in their communities.
