Black Girls Code

Black Girls Code

About the Founder

 

When I was first introduced to computer programming, as a freshman in Electrical Engineering, Fortran and Pascal were the popular languages for newbies in computing and the Apple Macintosh was the new kid on the block. I remember being excited by the prospects, and looked forward to embarking on a rich and rewarding career after college.

 

But I also recall, as I pursued my studies, feeling culturally isolated: few of my classmates looked like me. While we shared similar aspirations and many good times, there’s much to be said for making any challenging journey with people of the same cultural background.

 

Much has changed since my college days, but there’s still a dearth of African-American women in science, technology, engineering and math professions, an absence that cannot be explained by, say, a lack of interest in these fields. Lack of access and lack of exposure to STEM topics are the likelier culprits.

 

By launching Black Girls Code, I hope to provide  young and pre-teen girls of color opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming at a time when they are naturally thinking about what they want to be when they grow up.

 

That, really, is the Black Girls Code mission:  to introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders, coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.

 

Imagine the impact that these curious, creative minds could have on the world with the guidance and encouragement others take for granted. 

 

I have, and I can’t wait!  

 

Kimberly Bryant - Founder

 

 

 

Black Girls CODE is a global movement. Founded in 2011, the San Francisco based nonprofit introduces young girls of color, ages 6-17, to computer programming, electrical engineering, mobile app development, robotics and other STEM fields. In 2012 the nonprofit launched in 10 cities nationwide and expanded to South Africa. Voted as "2012 Most Innovative Nonprofit" by Bank of the West, the nonprofit continues to expand and empower hundreds of girls worldwide.

 

Our Vision

Black Girls CODE vision is to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 6 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities and builders of their own future through exposure to computer science and technology. "We want to be the Girl Scouts of Technology - creating a pipeline for women of color tech leaders, innovators and creators. We are disrupting the tech sector and changing the ratio #1GirlAtATime."?
