Supermodel Karlie Kloss Tells Women To Learn Code — And We Love Her For It

by Hannah Baxter

Recent Vogue cover girl and all-around American sweetheart Karlie Kloss has added a new line to her expanding resume: coding advocate.

The supermodel has partnered with the NYC-based Flatiron School to establish the Kode with Karlie scholarship, which provides an intensive two-week training course where young women can learn to code.

After taking a summer course at the school herself, Kloss became passionate about promoting coding amongst women, stating to The Guardian, “I think it’s crucial that young women learn to code as early as possible to ensure that we as young women have a voice and a stake in what the world looks like.”

With a prominent social media presence and an ubiquitous Victoria’s Secret contract, Kloss is a powerful instrument in encouraging girls who might never have considered coding to pursue careers in technology and web development. Her initiative, as well as programs like Girls Who Code, will provide women with the opportunity to discover the creative capacity within coding. This marks a significant shift towards addressing workplace inequality, and hopefully, the first of many steps in closing the wide gender gap in the tech world. 

Check out Karlie’s video for the Flatiron School below, and submit your application video to be one of the 20 women who will receive a Kode with Karlie scholarship this summer!
