Game developer Zynga has committed to providing $ 100,000 in support from the Social Impact Fund on International Women’s Day for code-writing women. The nonprofit named Girls Who Code, which has received a large amount of funding, aims to raise awareness about women in technology.
A study conducted by The Gurdian last year revealed that women only have a 28% share in the game development industry in the UK. It is a known fact that this rate does not change much in almost every part of the world. However, Zynga wants to change that. The company has announced that it will do its best to close the current gender gap by 2030.
