Eva Meyer de Stadelhofen

Computer geek and human rights activist, Eva is the founder of GirlCode, an international nonprofit and network who aims to reduce the gender gap in the STEM industry by teaching girls of age 8-17 how to code.

To do this, GirlCode offers weekly coding lessons in its clubs and in its workshops, as well as a mentorship program where girls are put in contact with entrepreneurs, scientists, and all-around girl bosses so that they can be inspired and find their STEM superstar.
Founded in 2017, GirlCode currently has 304 active clubs in 25 different countries, therefore impacting 81’345 girls as of September 2019.

Thanks to her work with GirlCode, Eva has recently been chosen by Global Changemakers and the Thomas Reuters Foundation to attend their summits as one of the best entrepreneurs worldwide.
