Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization whose mission is to close the gender gap in technology. There are 80 Summer Immersion Programs underway across the U.S., and starting in the fall, more than 1,000 Girls Who Code after-school clubs. We recently chatted with Leah Gilliam, who serves as vice president of education, strategy & innovation at Girls Who Code. In previous roles, Gilliam led the Hive NYC Learning Network, served as director of Informal Learning at New York’s Institute of Play, and was associate professor of electronic arts at Bard College. Gilliam is also an award-winning artist and designer, having created everything from board games to interactive installations.
