Nicole has been working on tackling the gender gap in tech through co-founding The GirlCode Program since 2015. This all girls coding programs' mission is to create a world where girls and women have the tools, confidence, and community to shatter the glass ceiling.
Using human centered design principles and project-based learning strategies, Nicole created the Code for Change curriculum. Code for Change is a week long intensive program where young girls pick a UN Sustainable Development Goals to solve using technology. The girls work in teams to brainstorm, prototype, and code their project. Then they present their work on field trips to Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and LinkedIn.
In 2018, Nicole designed and executed a subway ad campaign for the GirlCode Program with the message "This camp could change her life."
