Kimberly Bryant is a force of nature. As the founder and executive director of Black Girls Code, she has been a tireless advocate for increasing the number of women in STEM fields through mentorship, workshops, and networking opportunities for young and pre-teen girls of color. The mission: introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders who will become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures.
But I wanted to go a bit beneath the surface and learn more about Kimberly Bryant herself. We did talk a lot about diversity in the tech fields and how Black Girls Code also embraces the STEAM movement, but we also talked about her own path to success (and where she wants to go in the future). It’s a really great interview with someone who is a real game-changer in this industry. Enjoy!
