When you donate to Rewriting the Code, you help the women in our community gain access to the programs and experiences that will help them find their place in technology. In honor of #GivingTuesday, we bring you the thanks of some of the women in RTC to show you why there’s a smile behind every donation:
“Despite the ample vocabulary in the English language, I can’t quite describe just how valuable RTC has been for me as a college woman in tech, and how thankful I am for generous human beings like you who make it possible for students like me to thrive on our paths to pursuing careers in technology.
RTC, in short, is a family. Having been a member of RTC since its very early days, and having had the privilege of being a summer Hub Leader and serving on the Student Council the past couple of years, I’ve been absolutely blown away by how kind, thoughtful, and proactive RTC women are in helping other women navigate this male-dominated field. Not only have I myself benefited from being in this community—whether in being able to mentor other women when they have doubts about their career path, scholarships, internships, coursework, or other concerns, or in benefiting from the same advice that other women have to offer—but I’ve also loved watching us grow so quickly in the last few years. This rapid engagement from my fellow women has made me so hopeful that we will continue to thrive and be that safe space for women to discuss their genuine concerns, thoughts, and questions regarding technology careers and being a woman in the tech scene. Being able to rely on this community that is there, online and in person, no matter when or what, is such a grounding and reassuring feeling. RTC epitomizes for me the notion of “women building each other up”. You are truly a part of this mission and are a driving force in enabling all of this growth, exploration, and discovery. I couldn’t be more thankful for your generous support of our daring mission to make tech a meaningful, safe, rewarding, nourishing, and successful place for women in tech. Words can only take me so far, but I sincerely thank you for your contribution and support of us.”
