Ford Supports "Girls Who Code"

The shortage of females in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) areas is something that we as a society need to work on. Not only is it indicative of the gender bias that still permeates the modern world, but it may be detrimental to the USA's future technology needs. Well, Ford is stepping up to encourage female interest in STEM by supporting a group called "Girls Who Code."

A recent BetaNews article quotes Ford as making the following statement: "Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford, will support the education and professional growth of Girls Who Code club members in Northern California, serving more than 180 young women in grades six to 12 in the Bay Area. The Ford Palo Alto team will provide mentorship and instruction to club members, and help them engage in hands-on experience at the company's Silicon Valley research lab."
