With 2 days and about 21 hours left on Kickstarter, we are SO AMPED to know about BLACK GIRLS CODE! BGC is an organization out of Oakland, CA created by biotechnology and engineering professional Kimberly Bryant. BGC is crashing through the digital gender divide. (Check them on CNN!)
BGC’s mission: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
Black Girls Code is EXACTLY the kind of place where a young Roxë would’ve started on her path to programming!
WE LOVE IT!
Hats off and bowing down to Ms. Bryant for setting these girls up to be the REAL ballers of the 21st century —- because as Roxë would tell you, technology WILL be the new currency…
Roxë15 celebrates a truth that’s BETTER than fiction.
HELP US CREATE A NEW VISION OF THE FUTURE.
