DigiGirlz two-hour Workshop

Inspiring girls to pursue their dreams with technology


Join the fun at your Microsoft Store, where girls ages 10-18 will explore the importance of computer science and how it can enhance the things they already love to do. Attendees will learn what it’s like to work in technology to create something new, solve big problems, and explore possibilities.

During the Workshop, they’ll explore combining imagination, problem-solving skills, passion, and computer science to turn that into a career in STEM. With STEM, they can be the one to find the cure, crack the code, invent the solution, and #MakeWhatsNext.

  • The first hour of the Workshop features inspiring presentations from women who are creating, building, coding, leading, and knocking down barriers in the world of high-tech to #MakeWhatsNext. Girls will enjoy a presentation and Q&A session with our keynote speaker Mel McGee, Founder and CEO of We Can Code IT.
  • During the second hour, the girls will get hands-on experience in our Hour of Code™ session, which includes learning coding fundamentals. By the end of the Workshop, they’ll be familiar with resources that they can use to learn how to make a song, an eCard, an emoji, or a Minecraft world. They will have learned why computer science is a great way to express ideas and how it can be a rewarding career.

“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”

– Andy Laytin, Manager, IT Development, SQL DBAs Architecture, University Hospitals

It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have.  We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools.  These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.

When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
