By Dr. Tarika Barrett from Girls Who Code | Chief Operating Officer
As the COO of Girls Who Code, this holiday season, I want to say how grateful we are to have you in the Girls Who Code family. Thanks to your support, we’ve grown our movement to reach 185,000 girls around the world - 50% of whom are from historically underrepresented groups.
And now we are well on our way to closing the gender gap in entry level tech jobs by 2027. Our college aged alumni are majoring in CS or a tech related major at 15x the national average and our Black and Latinx alumni 16x the national average!
But even more important is that, together, we’re giving girls the tools they need to thrive in tech and to change the world. Our girls are designing programs to tackle some of our toughest challenges—like bullying, the wage gap, climate change, and more.
You have helped ensure that our girls have a part to play in defining the future of our economies, our communities, and our lives.
Thank you again for making our work possible and happy holidays to you and your family!
