Black Girls Code founder opens up about breaking barriers in tech on ‘GMA’
New York—Kimberly Bryant, founder of Black Girls CODE, discusses how her program is inspiring young African-American and girls of color to embrace and get deeply involved in STEM programs to discover new career paths across our tech world.
Since their launch in April 2011, Black Girls CODE has had the honor of bringing technology and entertainment to many wonderful girls of color. By teaching the girls programming and game design, they hope to have started the lifelong process of developing in them a true love for technology and the self-confidence that comes from understanding the greatest tools of the 21st century.
