Thankfully we have over 750 underrepresented young girls who can share their amazing experiences with you. Ranging from ages six to seventeen, Black Girls CODE is a global movement empowering girls of color in the world of technology.

Black Girls CODE is dedicated to building future pipelines for tech innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders. We’re advancing the market by empowering our daughters to be more than consumers but the creators of tomorrow.

They say “it takes a village to raise a child,” and that is exactly what we are trying to do. We’re calling local volunteers, supporters and parents to learn how they can get involved with our global movement.

Join the Black Girls CODE Founder Kimberly Bryant and myself in a discussion of how we expanded in ten American cities and in South Africa. You will also get to hear from some of Black Girl CODE’s Tech Divas as they share their excitement for upcoming workshops with our team of mentors like you!
