she++ works to empower underrepresented groups in technology by dismantling negative stereotypes surrounding technical careers. We aim to dispel the misconception that computer science by rebranding what it means to be a technologist. We begin with the people we know best — high school and college students. With our resources and guidance, high schoolers and college students experience, firsthand, computer science’s capacity for social impact and problem-solving. Our students pay it forward by becoming advocates for our movement and reaching out to their communities and schools. Together, we’re building the next generation of technologists by encouraging self-confidence and individuality in the classroom and workplace. We hope that these young technologists will continue to foster a culture of inclusivity and diversity in technical careers.
