Code Like a Girl is a social enterprise providing girls and women with the confidence, tools, knowledge and support needed to enter and flourish in the world of coding.
The technology we build today determines the world we live in tomorrow. But if that world is being built under the leadership of only a small portion of our community, what kind of world will we have?
It’s not enough to have more women using tech – we need more women building tech.
There are so many reasons why having women in tech is beneficial and vital: it will future-proof our workforce, it addresses sexism within the sector, provides role models for girls and young women and secures long-term profitability for businesses and organisations.
But to us, the most important reason to grow the number of women building tech is so that the world we live in can be equally enjoyed by everyone. We need diversity of experiences, perspectives and stories to build a world that is more empathetic, innovative and equal.
The only way to guarantee our tech delivers is to achieve diverse representation within the teams building it.
