Our Story

Fewer women are graduating with degrees in computer science today than 20 years ago. At the college level, too many women drop out of introductory computer science classes within the first week. ADDA was created to combat these issues by providing women and nonbinary individuals a supportive environment to learn about technology, challenge their abilities, and facilitate social change.

 

ADDA welcomes Barnard students--from all disciplines, including the humanities--and empowers them with coding skills. By taking an ADDA class, joining ADDA's Community of Practice, or becoming a member of our Student Advisory Board, you're supporting the next generation of female and nonbinary technologists.
