Let's fill the gap, together.
Rewriting the Code
Who are we?
Rewriting the Code is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and empowering college women in their pursuit of careers in technology. We believe that through creating meaningful partnerships with committed organizations like yours, we can begin to bridge the talent gap together.
Passionate. Talented. Diverse. Ever-growing.
The Rewriting the Code community consists of members and fellows who share a common bond of having an intense passion for technology and pursue this passion through their college academics. They come from top universities across the country and show their talent through projects, internships, hackathons, and volunteering for good. They are widely diverse in their interests, their skills, and in their backgrounds which make this community such a great place to learn and thrive. The community is continually growing, both in size and in each members’ personal and career development.
Unfortunately, the quit rate among women in computer science is alarmingly high – only 18% of computer science graduates are women and this number has stagnated for over a decade. This is also a significant drop in the percentage of females graduating with degrees in computer science since the 1980’s when women made up on average, over 30% of the graduating class.

Corporate Partner benefits
What our corporate partners are saying about
Rewriting the Code
“Rewriting the Code is addressing the issue that so many college women who set out to pursue a technical degree quit somewhere along their collegiate journey. As a tech company, we believe that building a strong, resilient pipeline of women in technology through organizations like Rewriting the Code is critical for the growth and success of our business and the industry more broadly.”
– Sara Furber, Head of Listings at The Investors Exchange
"Rewriting the Code's multi-university community has given us the chance to meet some incredible computer scientists that we wouldn't have encountered with our traditional on campus recruiting efforts. It also means that the impact of the fantastic internships our RTC fellows have at Capital One is far greater than just one women or even one school; it spreads our brand as a premier technology employer to an even larger and more diverse population than we would see otherwise.”
- Mike Fulkerson, Vice President for Core Innovation at Capital One
"As a rapidly growing software company in the Research Triangle, our search for great engineers is a never-ending task. Our partnership with Rewriting the Code has proven to be an invaluable resource for identifying tremendous talent far beyond our normal geographic reach. We are excited to continue building our relationship with them and look forward to meeting this year's class of engineers."
- Steve Hoffman, Vice President of Engineering at Teamworks
