IT'S TIME TO SHAKE UP THE

"BOYS' CLUB"

OF COMPUTING

Unless we take action, the percentage of women in the United States computing workforce will shrink in the next 10 years. This skills shortage has severe implications for America’s place in the global economy, and for the future of women.

That’s why we are working with Girls Who Code to help close the gender gap in technology by equipping young women with the skills to pursue technology careers. Accenture hosts Summer Immersion Programs and year-round Girls Who Code Clubs across the United States, offering skills training and exposure to real-world mentorship opportunities in technology.

Accenture’s investment in Girls Who Code reflects our belief that attracting, retaining and advancing women is critical to being a high-performance business. In fact, we surpassed our goal to reach 40 percent women new hires worldwide by 2017.

To date, our partnership has led to:

450+

3,300+
