Across the country, the numbers of women graduating with degrees in computer science are dismal. Less than 5% of women graduate with degrees in computer science or related fields, for women of color the number is less than 3%. In 2017, less than 15,000 women nationally graduated with degrees in computer science. But Girls Who Code’s college-aged alumni are choosing to major or minor in Computer Science or related fields at 15x (for alumni of color – 16x) this national average. And with a cohort of 30,000 alumni in 2019 alone, we expect our numbers to begin to dramatically shift national numbers.
This club means a lot to me because I am an alumnus of the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. This program is what made me decide to major in computer science.
