Powering the Future of Tech
The demand for technology talent is significant and growing.
By 2028, there will be 4 million computing jobs in the U.S., but our colleges and universities are only producing 19% of the graduates needed [Source].
Currently, women account for less than 20% of graduates with degrees in computer science and related disciplines [Source].
Based on foundational research on gender equality in tech, we designed our programming to improve curriculum, build community, and facilitate career access.
- Increase the number of college women studying computer science and related disciplines.
- Help them find the confidence, support, and community they need to stay in the field.
