AT&T Donates $1 Million to Girls Who Code

Last week AT&T made a $1 million donation to Girls Who Code, the organization committed to educating girls in STEM.

This donation will allow the organization to expand its summer sessions and after-school clubs to more cities around the country.

Girls Who Code has programs in New York, Silicon Valley, Boston, Seattle and Miami. Soon they will be in Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., too. Its goal is to educate 1 million young women in technology by 2020.

"This is a huge moment for Girls Who Code,” Founder and CEO Reshma Saujani wrote in an email to Bizwomen. “The more money we raise, the more girls we can teach. We're incredibly grateful that AT&T has made closing the gender gap a priority."

Saujani founded Girls Who Code in 2012. That year, there were only 20 girls in the summer immersion program. Since then, 3,000 girls have gone through club or summer programs.
