Empowering college women in tech

Undergraduate women in computer science and engineering have an alarmingly high quit rate.
Help us bridge the gap.

Unfilled tech jobs88.3%

600,000+ highly paid positions are unfilled, but only 55,000 CS majors graduate each year from US universities.

Despite 50/50 balance in introductory courses, only 18% of CS graduates are female.

Percent of women who leave41%

In the first 10 years of their careers, 41% of women drop out of technical roles, compared to 17% of men.

Rewriting the Code is a 501 (c)(3) dedicated to developing and empowering a community of college women with a passion for technology to become the next generation of exceptional engineers and tech leaders.


We are actively collecting data, building programs, and launching partnerships to understand why women quit and to help empower them on their journey to find longevity in tech. We are partnering with top universities and tech companies to identify high potential women in CS, Engineering and Math related majors during their undergraduate studies, help connect them with opportunities for technical internships, and provide robust programming, training, mentorship and community to help them excel in their technical educations and careers.

Share your expertise

Making connections with tech professionals is a key component in the success of our women. Rewriting the Code is building a database of experts who would be willing to support current students either by making presentations about your areas of expertise, by working one-on-one with students to practice interviewing, or by serving as longer-term mentors to individuals or groups of students. If you would like to be considered for these volunteer opportunities, please fill out the form at this link.

Partnerships

Our partners gain access to exceptional tech talent from 100+ top schools across the country, building relationships by connecting undergraduate women CS & E students with internship opportunities and providing educational programming focused on increasing confidence and capabilities to continue their studies and launch a career in tech. If your company may be a good fit as an RTC partner, please contact us to learn more.

Bridging the confidence gap.

Women majoring in computer science and engineering, and early in their tech careers, report that they lack confidence, stemming from feelings of isolation, imposter syndrome and implicit bias. Rewriting the Code has designed our program to help bridge the confidence gap through a holistic approach that includes Community, Career On-Ramps (through applied industry experience and education) and Coaching, each of which plays a key role in building the confidence women need to succeed.
