Google Is Putting $50 Million Toward Getting Girls To Code
Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Clinton want high school girls to embrace computer science. The two women were on hand at a Google event in New York City on Thursday called Made With Code. Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers. More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black girls Code and girls Who Code.
