Girls Who Code is an amazing program committed to closing the gender gap in the technology fields. Computer-related occupations are projected to increase 12.5% from 2014 to 2024 and will result in nearly a half-million new jobs. (BLS Study)
Unfortunately, only 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women. Because of this, Girls Who Code promotes girls in technology and fosters a community of sisterhood. My goal as the club facilitator is that these girls become more comfortable with programming, develop problem-solving skills, learn to collaborate with others, and of course, have fun!
