Made With Code, A Google Initiative to Encourage and Creatively Engage Girls With Code

Code is creative. Girls are creative. Everything else is just logistics.

Google has launched “Made With Code“, a cooperative initiative whose mission is to inspire and to “creatively engage girls with code” through mentors, makers and community support from women who are currently paving the way.

We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren’t represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen. If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we’re making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.
