Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that creates welcoming, supportive opportunities for women and non-binary adults to learn software development skills.
We envision a world where all people are included and empowered in developing the future of technology.
We are committed to making sure people of all races, education levels, income and upbringing can build confidence in their skill set to develop web and mobile applications. Our goal is to provide powerful hands-on programs in software development and create basic to advanced web and mobile applications.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
Through the lens of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging, GDI pursues its mission with the aim to provide high quality and accessible training opportunities in a welcoming and supportive learning environment.
“Girl, Develop It!” began as a call to action for women, by women who were tired of the low representation of women in tech, and wanted to make a difference.
The organization was founded in 2010 in NY with one class that sold out in 24 hours and then organically spread over the last decade. In 2018, we had chapters offering classes in over 60 US cities and have served over 100,000 students nationwide.
In 2020, GDI has pivoted to offer Virtual Classes and is continuing to build our capacity to serve our students during these difficult times.
