Girl Code Power

Enabling Girls to Unleash their Talent
Inspiring Girls to Reach their Potential
Motivating Girls to Create the Future

Our goal is to make sure everyone’s potential is fully realized. Sadly, some of the most recent statistics indicate that there is a tremendous technology gender gap.  We want to motivate girls to acquire critical skills that can change the trajectory of their lives and improve the world of technology

Did you know…

  • Only 0.4% of high school girls plan to major in computer science in college
  • In 2013, women made up only 14% of all computer science graduates (a 50% decrease from 1984)
  • Only 18.5% of AP Computer Science test-takers were girls (even though they make up 55% of overall AP test takers)

This gender skew goes beyond high school and college

  • Although women make up 50% of the workforce, they hold just 25% of the jobs in technical or computing fields
  • Industry giants such as Google indicate women account for only 17% of their tech employees

The good news…

With over 1 million computer related jobs projected by 2020, girls have an incredible opportunity to close the gender gap and transform the industry.  Studies show over 75% of girls who take coding courses major in or plan to major in Computer Science and related fields.


Our Girl Code Power classes inspire girls to code by providing
