Logitech has teamed up with Girls Who Code, joining the international non-profit in its essential mission to close the gender gap in technology worldwide, helping young and aspiring girls discover a passion for engineering and creativity with its Master Series of products.

Delphine Donne-Crock, general manager of creativity and productivity, Logitech: “Logitech and Girls Who Code are both committed to building a pipeline of female creators, makers and builders, so we are thrilled to team up and build this relationship globally. Logitech’s Master series is a collection of advanced tools, including products and software, designed and developed to help the builders of tomorrow — creators and coders. As we integrate technology into our daily lives now more than ever before, Logitech looks forward to contributing to the overall development, empowerment and success of the future leaders in Girls Who Code programs.”

Throughout the next year Logitech will work closely with Girls Who Code to deliver a range of educational and career opportunities. Logitech will sponsor a Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program, host virtual sessions and events for students, provide internship opportunities and more.

 To support Girls Who Code activities, Logitech will donate an amount measured on a portion of the global sales from every Master Series product sold, including MX Master 3, MX Keys and MX Anywhere 3, to Girls Who Code, supporting its ongoing programming and outreach efforts.

Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO, Girls Who Code: "Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in tech and change the image of what a programmer looks like and does—that work would not be possible without the support of partners like Logitech. We're grateful for their allyship in this space, and look forward to working together to bring more girls and young women into technology."
