Description

Jack Dorsey knows code. The co-founder of Twitter and CEO of the mobile payments company Square, Dorsey has the perfect pedigree of a Silicon Valley programmer turned business mogul. "I think it starts at an early age — I think that’s when the gender divide really starts," says Jackie Orth, a "camper" and college senior from the University of Louisville. "In my mind there is no better thing we can do to inspire women engineers than to show right at the head of engineering at Square, we have a woman {Alyssa Henry} and she’s amazing." Eva Snyder, a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College, agrees: “I definitely think having strong female role models, even something as small as if your sixth-grade teacher in mathematics is a woman, makes a big difference.” The four-day immersion program of College Code Camp is designed to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of women in technology.
