      They're providing assistance to women who want to join and succeed in a field that is mostly dominated by men. Women that are into tech end up being dissuaded from tech by the gatekeepers (i.e field/game/etc is for boys only) and the incel and/or hypersexualized men who are all but slobbering on the woman for being within arms reach while they're in school or at work.

It's simply a private organisation creating something geared toward those who have less opportunities in the field, giving them greater opportunities.
