Press Kit

CodeDay is a non-profit providing welcoming and diverse opportunities for under-served students to explore a future in tech and beyond.

Only 20% of technical workers at leading tech companies are women, and fewer than 10% are Black or Latino. Governments and non-profits have tried to close this opportunity gap by offering more classes, but most underrepresented students still don't want to learn.

CodeDay's programs attract students with no prior interest in coding, and inspire them to give it a try. More than 70% of new coders who attend continue to pursue coding.
