Dolby Laboratories Hosts Fifth Annual Girls Who Code Visit

On Thursday, July 25, 2019, over 20 young women from a local Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program (SIP) visited Dolby Laboratories' headquarters in San Francisco for a day of exploration, unique learning experiences, and networking. Through the Dolby Cares program, employee volunteers led thought-provoking demos in a few of its 100 + labs, guided the young innovators through a hands-on design thinking workshop, and discussed career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).
