Celebrating Black Women in Tech

Kimberly Bryant started Black Girls Code because she believes that it is important to increase the number of women of color in the digital space. By empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology, she believes she can provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040. We believe in her.
