Kimberly Bryant

Black Girls Code
Founder
San Francisco Bay Area
When Kimberly Bryant 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. She remembers being excited by the prospects and looking forward to a rich and rewarding career after college.

By launching Black Girls Code, she hopes 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.
