Simulations Plus (Nasdaq: SLP) today announced its final donation in celebration of 25 years in business. During this 25th anniversary year, which commenced in July 2021, teams of long-tenured Simulations Plus employees researched various organizations and selected recipients aligned with the Company’s vision, mission, and values. This fourth and final $25,000 donation was made to Girls Who Code, an international organization headquartered in New York, NY, with more than 8,500 programs worldwide dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. The donation was made on August 16, 2022.
“We are excited to close out our 25th anniversary celebration with this $25,000 donation to Girls Who Code,” said Lindsay Luke, Human Resources Director for Simulations Plus. “Their main mission, to close the gender gap in STEM, is one that closely aligns with our continued commitment to diversity and inclusion. As an organization where women make up 52% percent of our scientific staff, it’s important that we continue to encourage and support girls from a young age to grow in these fields, and we look forward to more opportunities to partner with Girls Who Code in the future.”
“At Girls Who Code, we know that to change what a programmer looks like and does, we must continue to make STEM accessible to all our students, especially those from historically underrepresented groups and low-income communities,” said Dr. Tarika Barrett, CEO of Girls Who Code. “We are grateful to Simulations Plus for supporting our mission to close the gender gap in tech and providing our students with resources to thrive in their classrooms, communities, and beyond.”
