Join us in celebrating #DayoftheGirl

In the CSforALL community, ‘International Day of the Girl’ is the celebration of outstanding work from hundreds of organizations that drive change for gender equality in STEM across the nation. Together, our intergenerational activism on equity impacts individuals, classrooms, policies, and more as our CSforALL movement expands across the nation.

#DayoftheGirl is also a reminder that all education system decisions need to be made with girls.
