Today, we’re excited to be featured as Girls Who Code (GWC)’s “Partner of the Day.” This summer, Adobe has 100 female employees and 60 female interns who are volunteering as mentors for the GWC Summer Immersion Program, which is a 7-week course that offers 11th and 12th grade girls instruction in web development and design, robotics, and mobile development.
“The gender gap isn’t just a Silicon Valley issue anymore,” says Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code. “The shortage of women in technical roles, whether it’s retail, establishment or finance, is a massive crisis both in terms of innovation and socio-economic equality throughout the United States. Girls Who Code has established a successful track record of empowering girls to pursue majors and eventually careers in computer science, and we’re inspired that a powerhouse organization such as Adobe has invested in taking our movement to the next level this summer.”
