Do something powerful today

Today is the global day of giving. What better opportunity to stand with our movement to close the gender gap in technology than by donating before midnight this #GivingTuesday?

Our Sisterhood is a diverse community of students, alumni, parents, and volunteers who come together to support young girls in developing their tech skills. Our digital visual album, called Sisterh>>d, celebrates these young women driving our most transformative moments.

Among those impressive girls is Gia.
Doubling as a full-time student and museum employee, she was inspired by an exhibition on cybersecurity. Gia realized how little she understood about how the internet works, and what drives the apps she uses each day. Gia attended our Summer Immersion Program and emerged with the confidence and tech skills she needed to make an impact in her community. She now works with other young women who are building their own movements.

We want to change the perception of what a coder looks like, and with generous support from champions like you, we are doing just that. This #GivingTuesday, your gift directly impacts the more than 90,000 girls who take part in our programs.

Thank you so much for your support!
Reshma Saujani
