Mirapath recently held a Speakeasy Casino Night fundraiser to support Girls Who Code. Dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology, this non-profit organization has grown from 20 to 40,000 girls in 50 states.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there will be more than 1.4 million computing-related job opportunities by 2020. At current rates, 29% of those jobs are on track to be filled by U.S. computing graduates. While women are on track to fill only 3%.
“Mirapath values organizations like Girls Who Code,” said Doris Yeh, CEO and Co-Founder of Mirapath. “Being in the technology industry for 30+ years, I can relate to the gender gap. Organizations like Girls Who Code provide girls a head start to succeed in technology and need our support. Their cause helps inspire and educate girls to pursue opportunities in the technology industry and hopefully bridge the gender gap.”
Get involved. Support Girls Who Code and help close the gender gap.
