Our Mission

Code/Art is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the number of girls studying computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming.

The number of women majoring in computer science (CS) has been decreasing since the 1980s. A big reason for this is the lack of early coding programs that feel welcoming to girls.

We envision a world where all girls have a positive early introduction to coding that leads to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive tech workforce.

“Many girls never even try coding because they think it’s purely computational and not something where they can be creative. By infusing art into all of our coding lessons, we show them coding can be creative. That’s where Code/Art really stands out.”

– Amy Renshaw, CEO & Founder

How We Are Reversing the Trend

Code/Art provides education and support that closes the gaps preventing girls from entering, learning and succeeding in computer science fields. We open doors for girls to successfully compete for high-paying and flexible tech jobs, eliminate gender biases in the technologies we use every day, and create new innovations drawn from the unique experiences and perspective of women.
