Our Mission

What We Stand For

We work to bring modern technology education to classrooms full of young women and students in the socioeconomic and racial minority to shift the balance of diversity in the technology workplace. We strive to help both girls and boys experience the gratification they can receive from making a social impact through computer science, and we hope that the knowledge imparted through our program offerings will enable them to make a difference worldwide.

Our VISION

What We Strive For

We aspire to see under-represented groups in the technology workplace thrive and diversify the community with new perspectives, new processes, and new thinking that challenges the status-quo. We strongly believe that technology should be accessible to everyone that young students from every race and community can disrupt and change our world for the better. Join us in dissolving the misconception that the technology-sector is not for women and help us redefine what it means to be a computer scientist!

Join Our Community

Girls Computing League works hard every day to help students achieve their dreams of entering a technical career field. We work with companies both to create higher education opportunities for students and hunt for mentors willing to support the next generation of computer scientists. However, we are reliant on our global community of enthusiast and activists to bring about true change. To learn more about what we do and to keep up to date with future opportunities, consider signing up for our upcoming newsletter. We will send you occasional updates about the organization and let you know how you can help the next generation of female scientists and engineers. We cannot wait to see what GCL and you can do together.
