Launched in 2014 in Italy, Girls Code It Better is a free digital creativity and entrepreneurship project that brings girls closer to tech and STEM careers. The project is led by Officina Futuro Fondazione W-Group.

There are two key reasons for selecting Girls Code it Better as a winner of EDSA23. Firstly, the project promotes not only digital but also entrepreneurship paths for girls and secondly, the initiative's impressive reach and impact played a significant role in its selection.

With 522 clubs established across 223 secondary schools and over 10,000 girls participating from 17 Italian regions, Girls Code It Better demonstrates its scalability and effectiveness in engaging girls and nurturing their interest in ICT and STEM careers.
