What is being done to motivate female talent in the STEM field in the world?

Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code is an organization that values diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential to its mission.

They acknowledge that historical and institutional barriers—particularly racial bias and discrimination—play a role in the widening gender gap in computer science and who has access to opportunities in these fields. Girls Who Code focuses its work not only on gender diversity but also on young women who are historically underrepresented in computer science fields.

It acknowledges and values the intersections of race/ethnicity, gender identity and expression, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, national origin, and religious/spiritual identities.

Girls Who Code welcomes into its community and programs anyone who identifies as female regardless of assignment at birth. Their programs also welcome people who identify as non-binary or gender nonconforming and want to be in a female-identified environment.
