While our programs are designed for participants who identify as female to promote a girls-supportive environment, we encourage our Clubs to welcome any member who wishes to join the Girls Who Code mission regardless of gender identity.
Girls Who Code takes a gender-specific approach to our programming. This means that our programming is one that keeps the focus on girls, and considers the biases that might impact their experience. We deliver this by providing girls with safe, girls-focused spaces, and centering curricula on women in tech so that girls can imagine themselves in computing roles. Any member regardless of gender identity who wishes to support our mission is encouraged to join the Sisterhood and also learn about these inspiring women in the industry!
