Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. In partnership with Olay, 7 of the 185,000 Girls Who Code built this page to showcase real women in technology.
“It was fascinating to see the technology behind Olay’s brand and the authentic effort and thoughtfulness they showed to make us feel truly welcome and part of the campaign.”— Paris F.
“Working alongside the people, especially the fearless women who make Olay run was an incredible experience. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn about the brand, witness how Olay continuously supports women in STEM, and collaborate with members of the Olay team and Girls Who Code community during our workshop.”- Marivi S.
“I loved learning from and being part of such an authentic collaboration. From the top down, the campaign is truly aligned to its mission. Witnessing the energy, passion and process it takes to make such an impactful step was captivating.”– Kamile D.
“This campaign serves as an important reminder of recognizing and celebrating our intersecting identities. It is about bringing diversity of thought and speaking out for those who do not have the privilege and opportunity to do so - and I am incredibly grateful. Women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and other marginalized communities have not only made strides in the past, but will continue to do so in the future.”— Shannon L.
“I am grateful to have worked with such a supportive team on an empowering campaign and see our efforts come together from beginning to end. I leave this internship with a deep understanding of the orchestration that goes behind projects like Olay’s “Make Space For Women” Superbowl campaign. Going forward, I am hopefully about using my skills to remedy the lack of women representation in STEM.”– Ayushe N.
“It was incredible to see everything that happens behind the scenes of creating website pages from idea to completion. I never realized how much thought went into everything from the design elements to the words found on the page. Everyone on Olay’s team were so supportive and I learned more than I thought I could in the short period of time.”— Mina R.
“My experience with the Olay Superbowl ad campaign has been one sorted into the ‘long term memories’ category in my brain. It’s been an amazing experience – especially this project where women in STEM were highlighted. I was shown there are many women in STEM/IT and this has furthered reassured me that I’m going into the right career path. I’m so grateful to be exposed to a real world experience at a young age. I was very genuinely intrigues while learning the processes that a big company goes through in order to create a website. I never knew so much goes on behind the scenes and I now have a greater appreciation for the work”– Trish W.
