Technology is changing everything about the way we live and work. Computing skills are the most sought-after in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average — but girls across the US are being left behind.

Girls Who Code, the national non-profit dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology, is working to reverse the decline.
