Computing skills are the most sought-after in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future — but girls across the US are being left behind. Today, less than a quarter of computing jobs are held by women, and that number is declining.
We’ve partnered with Girls Who Code to help build the pipeline of female computer scientists through their Girls Who Code Clubs. Our free after-school program will teach 6-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models. This informational meeting will provide an overview of the club structure and goals. The club will meet weekly beginning on January 9, 2018 at 4pm. Register starting November 1st.
