Copper Leaf Financial Sponsoring Vermont Women's Fund Event - Girls Who Code
Copper Leaf Financial is very pleased to sponsor the Vermont Women's Fund Annual event on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at the UVM Davis Center as they host Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code.
Saujani founded the national nonprofit in 2012 to close the gender gap in technology by creating a network of afterschool coding clubs and summer immersion camps for girls. Girls Who Code is now a movement across the U.S., having reached over 90,000 girls in all 50 states.
And the results speak for themselves. Girls Who Code alumni are choosing to major in CS, or related fields, at a rate 15 times the national average; Black and Latina alumni are choosing to major in CS or related fields at a rate 16 times the national average.
