Since their founding in 2012, Girls Who Code has served more than 500,000 girls across the US and around the world.
This summer, Webflow will be sponsoring one of Girls Who Code’s Summer Immersion Programs.
Why are we partnering with Girls Who Code?
1. Our mission is aligned with the efforts of GWC
At Webflow, we’re dedicated to empowering everyone to build on the web — and building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace that reflects and empowers the world we’re building for. By supporting an organization that is dedicated to increasing the number of young women in tech — we are able to continue on this mission.
2. Education is at the core of our product offering
Girls Who Code has education at its core — and so do we. At Webflow, we believe that learning should be a lifelong pursuit — whether you’re a beginner or an expert, young or old, starting a new career or years into one — that never stops.
3. We’re passionate about building diverse and equitable workplaces
Our engineering, product, and brand design teams are all led by talented women, who are fully committed to our dedication to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. Working with Girls Who Code allows us to make a direct impact on the next generation and help ensure that we bring our commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusivity into the future.
What will the students learn?
Our aim over the course of the Summer Immersion Program is to show the students how they can use Webflow as an effective tool to learn no-code, and about the importance of understanding code and how it works when it comes to no-code.
They’ll have hands-on workshops from the one-and-only Lacey Kesler (Senior Community Education Manager), and hear from a panel of women in our engineering, product, and design teams on their paths into tech. We’ve also organized keynotes from Jiaona Zhang (VP of Product), and Arquay Harris (VP of Engineering).
And of course, would we even be sponsoring a summer camp if we weren’t going to make some cool merch? Keep an eye out on our merch store for some new Webflow x Girls Who Code co-branded merch later in the summer.
We’ll be releasing the keynotes from this program on our YouTube channel at the end of the program, so if you want to see some top-notch inspirational content and to get an idea of just how passionate we are about this partnership, make sure to follow along with our socials.
Because we believe in the power of (design) education.
