WHO WE ARE?

GirlsCodeToo initiative is focused on enabling, supporting, and encouraging girls to develop an interest in technology, through a series of introductory and themed workshops, coding clubs, leadership Classes, talks,  and camps. 

We aim to prepare the next generation of female leaders and tech entrepreneurs!

 

By closing the gender gap which currently looms over both the tech industry and engineering universities, we aim to empower girls with the digital skills to achieve BIG dreams.

Our target is to spark an interest in mathematics, computer science, science, and technology in young girls by showing, explaining, and helping them themselves create amazing things that can be achieved only by using technology. We hope to motivate more young women to register in technical studies and pursue a career in tech! 

 

>_ OUR MISSION

GirlsCodeToo is a Swiss-based non-profit organisation, founded by a motivated team of industry professionals, professors, students, and parents. Our initiative is focused on supporting and encouraging girls to explore technology and discover innovation from a new angle.

We believe that girls are curious, capable, and creative – every girl deserves to take part in directing and creating technology that is shaping our world. 

GirlsCodeToo provides a nurturing, safe, and supportive environment where girls can explore different opportunities in the digital world by learning directly from inspiring university students and industry professionals. 

We work to encourage sparks of talent and curiosity by introducing girls to the software tools and processes that are used to build apps, games, websites, and robots – inspiring them to explore academic or career opportunities in the fields of technology. At the end of each course, the girls come out of class with a finalized project that they can use and re-use on their laptop or computer. Each course is designed around clearly outlined learning objectives that should support the girls in understanding the purpose of each concept taught by GirlsCodeToo.

>_ OUR GOAL

GirlsCodeToo’s goal is to close the gender gap which currently looms over both the tech industry and engineering universities and to empower girls to fulfill their potential with an understanding of our digital world.

GirlsCodeToo collaborates with partner organisations and universities across Switzerland to increase the number of girls applying for STEM-related education programmes and technical apprenticeships. 

GirlsCodeToo provides guidance and support to its students in the following formats:

  • Introductory coding workshops 
  • In-depth workshops in specific coding languages or technologies 
  • Workshops to boost confidence and interpersonal skills
  • Summer camps
  • Inspiring tech Tech Talks by industry professionals

With the help of our partners, we provide girls with the necessary skills to become an instrumental player in shaping tomorrow’s digital world.
