Black Girls CODE
Black Girls CODE builds pathways for young women of color to embrace the current tech marketplace as builders and creators by introducing them to skills in computer programming and technology. Radical action is needed if we are to close the opportunity gap for Black women and girls. We lead a global movement to establish equal representation in the tech sector.

Together, we are creating stronger economies and more equitable societies-ultimately realizing the true potential of democracy through diversity and inclusion.
