"There's absolutely high demand for computer science jobs," says Tina Furuki with BSA. "In fact, they're expecting by 2024 there will be 4.4 million computer science jobs available in the U.S. And it's predicted that over a million of those positions will go unfilled. So we're hoping that with Girls Who Code, we will be able to help fill that pipeline and close the gender gap in computing."
