Women make up half the U.S. college-educated workforce, yet only 25% of computing professionals.* At this meetup, we'll discuss various opportunities for girls that aim to close this gender gap. Panelists representing a range of organizations will share opportunities for girls in computing, from in-school strategies to informal enrichment and college pathways.
