Alphabet, which backs diversity in all facets of technology, is helping to shed light on a specific project, a film called “CODEGIRL“. It comes via filmmaker Lesley Chilcott, who you might be familiar with from her work on “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Waiting for Superman”

As an extension of Google’s “Made With Code” project, the new documentary is being shared, free of charge, on YouTube until November 5th. The film will be in theaters in the next few weeks.

Here’s Google’s summary of the film:

“CODEGIRL” follows the story of 5,000 girls from 60 countries as they compete in a global entrepreneurship and coding competition by Technovation. The girls have three months to develop an app that attempts to solve a problem in their local community. In the film, they size up their competition, interact with teachers and local mentors, learn to code, and pitch their ideas all in hopes of winning $10,000 in funding and support.

You can support the film by sharing it with the hashtag “#Rallyforcodegirl.”
