HighEdWeb is pleased to welcome our #heweb16 Monday keynote:
Kimberly Bryant, Aspen Institute Fellow and founder of Black Girls CODE.
Ms. Bryant (@6gems) is a biotechnology/engineering professional who has spent the last decade in a series of technical management roles for Fortune 100 companies. In 2011 she founded Black Girls CODE (@BlackGirlsCode ) a non-profit organization dedicated to introducing girls of color to the field of technology and computer programming with a concentration on entrepreneurial concepts. The organization’s vision is 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.”
We’re excited to invite Ms. Bryant back to her hometown of Memphis, Tenn., to share her vision with us, and we look forward to learning from her on Monday, October 17!
