Why Girls Who Code:
The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. By 2020, women must fill half of these positions, or 700,000 computing jobs. We believe that more girls exposed to computer science at a young age will lead to more women working in technology and engineering fields. Since beginning in 2012, Girls Who Code to date has reached over 3,860 girls in 29 states with computer science education.
