More Great Projects

I ran into several more projects / organizations promoting women in IT. Great stuff!

Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that exists to provide affordable and accessible programs to women who want to learn web and software development through mentorship and hands-on instruction.

Girls Who Code programs work to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.

Rails Girls started in Finland and is now a global non-profit volunteer organization. It aims to give tools (especially with Ruby on Rails) and a community for women to understand technology and to build their ideas by providing a great experience on building things and by making technology more approachable. Girls learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology.
