Lena Furci is the Founder and Executive Director of HER Academy. She founded HER Academy in 2018 to reinvent the computer science pipeline for women. She works with schools to build computer science programs that support and encourage girls and young women. HER Academy’s K-12 curriculum centers the needs and interests of students who are often marginalized in computer science (CS) – children from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, children from rural or economically impoverished communities, children with neuro-diverse learning styles, and girls from all backgrounds.
