“The time for talk is over – at Code First Girls, we are on a mission to help women rewrite their future. Through the power of community, change can and will happen.”
So reads the About section on the Code First Girls website. Short and sweet, it’s also a perfect example of the organization’s commitment to action over words. In its first six years, the UK-based company has already given free coding lessons to over 20,000 women and connected them with more than 50 top employers. It not only educates and motivates women in tech, but also teaches them to network.
