GIRLS WHO CREATE, MAKE, AND DO.
gender gap in tech once and for all, one exceptional coder at a time.
FEWER WOMEN ARE ENTERING
TECH THAN EVER
In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women.
Today, it’s only 24%1.
By addressing systemic problems in the world of coding, and countering the high drop-off rate in girls between the ages of 13 and 17, Girls Who Code aims to close the gender gap in entry-level tech jobs - by as early as 2027.
As the company that champions global gender balance, diversity and equality above all else, Logitech is thrilled to get behind the cause.
KEEPING GIRLS ON THE PATH TO MASTERY
You can’t be what you can’t see. That’s why, in support of the Girls Who Code mission, Logitech is putting the spotlight on women who have mastered their fields in STEM. While our featured #WomenWhoMaster provide girls with powerful aspirations and career tips, Logitech aims to equip them with the tools they need to thrive.

With each MX product sold, Logitech is donating $0.05 to Girls Who Code - committing to a minimum donation of US$300,000 until the end of 2022 for the cause. What’s more, Logitech is committing to a series of educational initiatives, sponsoring Girls Who Code’s Summer Immersion Program and developing an internship program to put young women on the path to success in STEM.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
