GDI rejects the stereotypes that women and non-binary individuals aren’t interested in technology and that people can’t learn tech as adults. GDI chooses to focus on affordable education services for adults who might otherwise be unable to access tech classes, letting them know it’s never too late for them to learn. We are raising $7,200 before May to provide 10 more scholarships in 2023. Please make a donation today and support our scholarships.
Our Community

Over the past decade GDI has engaged over 100,000 women and non-binary adults in our programs and events. Since we have gone virtual in 2020, we have engaged 5,000 more. Some of our members already work in the technology sector, but even more are looking to break in. Many of our members currently work in the education and nonprofit sectors.
