TechGirls is a non-profit organization focused on overcoming the gender disparity in computing fields through workshops, programs, and exposure to computing careers. Currently, only 14% of software engineers are female and 18% of computer science degrees belong to women. Our mission is to encourage females, especially from underserved areas and underrepresented communities, to explore computing fields by providing meaningful opportunities for girls to create with technology.
