#AmpCodeLikeAGirl Success!

At the beginning of March, we launched a month-long campaign called #AmpCodeLikeAGirl:

Will You Help Us Grow Our Community?

We set a goal of moving into the top 100 Medium publications and set a target of 5000 new followers in March to achieve this goal of making it into the Medium100 and we did it!

Code Like A Girl’s ranking on toppub.xyz as of April 1

As you can see, we are now ranked #95 on toppub.xyz. We did quite well against our target of 5000 new followers, growing a bit more than 4000, or double what we expected to grow in March!

Thank you so much to everyone who has worked so hard to help spread the work and #AmpCodeLikeAGirl. And here’s the result of all this work to build our community:

So…what’s next?

Publications on Medium.com are growing — which means our Medium100 status is something we need to keep investing in. But more importantly, growing our community isn’t about the vanity metric of our rank. It’s about growing our reach, our audience and ultimately our voice. Our mission is to amplify the message by and about Women In Technology.

We need to keep building our community. Here are 3 ways you can help us:

  1. Like our stories that resonate with you and share them on your social network. It would be great if you would use the #CodeLikeAGirl hashtag too!
  2. Recommend our publications to others! Politely and respectfully encourage others to check our our articles and follow us if they like what they see.
  3. The world needs your genius — your brilliance — your awesome. One way you can share is to write an article for us. We would love to hear your idea for an article or see a draft. We provide support and writing coaching and want to see you succeed.
