Kode With Klossy seeks to achieve gender equity in economic opportunity.
Technology has incredible power to change and influence the way we live our lives and the way we work. This is only becoming more and more true as innovation is happening faster and on a wider scale than ever before.
Unfortunately, the culture of technology tends to encourage only some identities; and access to education and opportunities is not equitable. We are here to combat that. We want to make sure that young people everywhere have the opportunity to wield the power of technology and pursue bright futures in STEAM.
Kode With Klossy creates learning experiences and opportunities for young women and gender expansive youth. Our programs ignite a spark that fuels our scholars' agency to pursue their passions in a tech-driven world.
KODE WITH KLOSSY CREATES MULTIPLE LEARNING EXPERIENCES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG WOMEN AND NON-BINARY INDIVIDUALS.
We disrupt the status quo.
We meet ourselves and others where we are.
We make it safe for everyone’s voice to be heard.
We have boundless curiosity.
We dream big and aim high.
We dare to take risks.
We are all lifelong learners.
