she codes; is a community of women in technology

she codes; is a community of women in technology, created to achieve an equal number of female and male software developers in Israel. Founded in 2013 by Ruth Polachek and a small group of volunteers from different tech fields, today she codes; includes approximately 30,000 members. Our members include women who want to learn software development or make a career shift into high-tech, developers who want to advance their skills and network with other women in high-tech and high school students who are learning to program. Our core values are Confidence, Perseverance, and Community.

We operate over 30 branches all over Israel. Branches include programming learning tracks, project co-working with support from community volunteers, tech lectures, events with Inspirational Women, career advising and more. Volunteer opportunities at she codes; contribute to the personal and professional development of members. Branches, learning track planning, events, and more are all volunteer-run.
