Shaping the Environment for Women in Tech: Empowering Girls to Code with Isabel Sieh
At Ignition, our passion has always been supporting the best and brightest creative leaders and entrepreneurs in pursuit of building a strong, diverse startup ecosystem. Because we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk — We are excited to welcome Isabel Sieh, the founder of Girls Will Code, to the Ignition community and be a part of her crusade to empower young girls to code.
Isabel Sieh discovered her interest in coding at the age of 10. Eager to share her passion, she eventually founded Girls Will Code in partnership with global companies such as Google and Accenture. With Girls Will Code, Isabel Sieh hopes to inspire and educate girls who share her enthusiasm for coding, and together, overcome the barriers of learning the ins and outs of computer programming.
Girls Will Code is a community that encourages girls to pursue a career in STEM through hosting workshops, classes, and events. One of the underlying goals of Girls Will Code is to close the gender gap in STEM disciplines by reaching out to young women all over the Philippines and inspire them to take part in changing the world one code at a time.
