GU Women’s Coders is an organization that strives to build digital literacy outside of the typical classroom. We bring together women with as little to no coding experience to declared CS majors and encourage everyone to expand and think critically about their understanding of technology. GuWeCode provides a supportive environment in which members can thrive with the support and knowledge of their peers, mentors, and faculty, and have the ability to participate in social events, coding studios, and Coding Week!

Becoming a member means that you will actively engage with our community in the ways defined below.
