What started as an experiment has grown into a national movement

Girls Who Code has gone from 20 girls in New York to 10,000 girls in 42 states. That’s the same number of girls who graduate each year with a degree in computer science. That’s progress! I’m proud to say we’re not just aiming to close the gender gap in tech — we’re actually doing it.

When girls learn to code, they become change agents in their communities. Whether it’s a game to illustrate the experience of an undocumented immigrant or a website to provide free college prep, our girls create technology that makes the world a better place. Like us, you believed in girls’ unlimited potential. Thanks to your support and contributions, together we’ve inspired thousands of girls to see a future in tech. [1]

Reshma Saujani is recognized as a global trailblazer in technology, innovation, and design. As founder and CEO of the non-profit, Girls Who Code [2], her mission is to close the gap in STEM education and empower girls worldwide to pursue careers in science and engineering.
