Twenty years ago, women made up 40% of the computing workforce. Today, that number has dropped to 25%. This afternoon, I opened the @americanlibraryassociation annual conference by sharing @girlswhocode's movement to initiate girls into the world of tech and reverse that downward trend. In the last five years, our Summer Immersion and Club programs have introduced and sharpened the coding skills of 40,000 girls and counting. This August, we'll be bringing coding to an even greater audience of girls with the publication of our @girlswhocode book series, a call to action for girls everywhere to learn to code and change the world.

Happy birthday to my first baby, my sweet dog Stan. Thank you for 7 years of pure joy: your smile, your cuddles, your loyalty, our walks, and your friendship with Shaan have meant everything to me.

Couldn't be more proud of Michelle, Cassandra, and the rest of the Greenwich High School Girls Who Code Club whose app, Under My Wing, won Best in Nation and $10,000 in the @verizon App Contest. Under My Wing, which helps women stay safe from sexual assault, was the most challenging of several ideas the girls had for an app. By attempting the most difficult app, these girls were #bravenotperfect.
Michelle and Cassandra started the Club when they noticed a lack of opportunities for beginning programmers at their school. Young men are far more likely to learn to code than young women. That's why this August, @girlswhocode will be releasing a first-of-its-kind book series as an invitation to girls to learn to code and change the world. Our books will share stories of real-life female coders and explain fundamental coding concepts with real-life examples. The fact is, any girl can learn to code. We're leading the movement to make sure more do.

This week Shaan started summer school. As usual, he was a champ and not at all nervous. I was a little more anxious!

This week, @girlswhocode kicked off 18 summer immersion program in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and Miami. Our programs give 11th and 12th grade girls the chance to learn about web design and development, robotics, and mobile design under the tutelage of an all-star lineup of female engineers and entrepreneurs. (By the way, this is our fifth year of summer immersion programs. We'll have reached more than 40,000 girls by the end of 2017!) Congrats to all the girls who started in a program this week––I can't wait to see what you create.

Yesterday, I spoke at a breakfast hosted by the New York Amsterdam News in celebration of Black female scientists. It was absolutely inspiring to hear about the achievements of hardworking, brilliant women who did so much to advance the fields of medicine, physics, and tech. Thanks to Elinor Tatum and the Amsterdam News team for a wonderful morning.

You know it's the weekend when it's time for birthday brunch.

Morning workout over, ready for the weekend! πŸ₯ŠπŸ₯ŠπŸ₯Š

#tbt to last night's dinner with the team 🍝🍷🍝🍷

Excited to be featured on @gimletmedia's podcast "The Venture," where I spoke about seeking to be brave instead of perfect. It's like breaking a habit, once you start to be brave, you are always just brave. Link in bio for more. Thanks for listening.

Really enjoyed speaking at the @hewittschool commencement last night. The Hewitt School is a fine example of where girls are given the opportunity to discover their full intellectual potential, and I know this group of girls will go on to do great things. K-12 education is very near and dear to my heart. When I ran for NYC Public Advocate in 2013, I ran on a platform to get computer science education into every school. After losing the race, I founded @girlswhocode so that we could work to achieve that goal anyway. It's always so inspiring to meet young women who are future innovators and leaders, and last night was no exception. Congrats, Hewitt Class of 2017!
