Girls Who Code Banner

Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization founded by Reshma Saujani to close the gender gap in technology, specifically coding. Over the course of the program, girls learn to code and eventually make their own website about an issue that they face. Our particular program is Omaha Girls Who Code, and we learn to code through Do Space. This website wouldn't be possible without Girls Who Code.
