Representatives from PanAgora’s Women-In-Network group visited the Girls Who Code 10th Anniversary event, the 2023 CodeFair, held in New York City on March 24th. This 3-day event was open to the public and encouraged girls of all ages to use technology and coding to innovate, discover and engage their imagination. It was inspiring to see girls of all ages showcasing their work and immersing themselves in various exciting tech experiences.
“Created in celebration of Girls Who Code’s 10th Anniversary, CodeFair was designed to mirror the organization’s ambition, creativity, and unprecedented scale – and honor the 500,000 students, 115,000 alumni, and dozens of partners that make up the Girls Who Code community. Over the last ten years, Girls Who Code has changed the culture of what a computer scientist looks like and does and has inspired an entire generation to seek out the thriving jobs of the future. They remain on track to close the gender gap in entry-level tech jobs by 2030. Looking ahead, CodeFair also marks the beginning of a new goal to reach 1 million students in the next decade of work.”*
PanAgora is a proud supporter of Girls Who Code and its goal to close the gender gap in the technology industry.
