Our Vision

Empowering women in tech.

 
 

We all look forward to a time when being a female developer would be a norm and they would not be referred to as “women in tech”. There has been so much talk about equal representation and diversity in the tech industry due to gender imbalance. There is a targeted effort to train and recruit more females into the tech industry through female-only boot camps, programs, scholarships, workshops, etc. all in a bid to boost the female inclusion rate in the industry.

According to a report by McKinsey, if every country narrowed the gender gap at the pace of the fastest improving country in its regional peer group, the world could add USD 12 trillion to the annual gross domestic product in 2025.

Gitgirl aims to train passionate and cognitively talented females between the ages 18-35 to be world-class developers without the pressure of creating another form of segregation. Gitgirl aims to achieve this through its immersive free program for younger girls and its online and on- campus courses. Today’s complex, global economy requires a skilled and gender- balanced workforce that can leverage technology to fuel success. Dynamic fields like data science and web development evolve in real time, and we will continuously pilot, launch, and sunset programs to respond to market demand and the evolution of tools and techniques.
