Girls Who Code

Closing the gender gap in computing & technology

Each summer, Pfizer partners with Girls Who Code, an international nonprofit organization that aims to close the gender gap in computing, to host their virtual Summer Immersion Program (SIP). By engaging students around the world with values of bravery, sisterhood, and activism, Girls Who Code is committed to supporting women in STEM and increasing the number of women in the workplace. This partnership is an important part of our effort at Pfizer to create more opportunities for women in technology.  

The program aims to provide students with an introduction to beginner computer science concepts which includes an introduction to programming. Students apply these programming skills by building a game that is presented at the end of the two-week period. Pfizer partners with Girls Who Code to host several sessions throughout this program relating to several topics such as drug discovery, technology careers at Pfizer, networking & soft skill development, data science & AI, and more.


This is a pre-college program for female or non-binary high school students in grades 9 through 11. The program is open to students of all levels; prior computer science experience and/or classes are not required. This is a fantastic opportunity for students who have an interest in pursuing a career in technology and want to develop computer science skills.


The two-week Summer Immersion Program takes place every summer on varying dates. Once students are admitted to the program, they are assigned to a specific two-week period with a corresponding corporate partner.


The program is currently virtual for the entirety of the two-week period.
