About Kimberly Bryant
Kimberly Bryant is a Biotechnology/Engineering professional who has spent a decade in the Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, and Manufacturing industry. She founded Black Girls Code in April 2011 as a way to close the digital divide for girls of color. Black Girls Code is a nonprofit organization that aims to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7-17 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 serves nearly 2,000 students throughout the United States, with more than 600 volunteers from the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) industries. For her efforts, the former electrical engineer in 2013 was named one of Business Insider's "25 Most Influential African Americans in Technology," and Black Girls Code received a Champion of Change award from the White House in July 2013. The award is given to celebrate people in the U.S. “who are doing extraordinary things to expand technology opportunities for young learners—especially minorities, women and girls, and others from communities historically underserved or underrepresented in tech fields.” Kimberly was also honored by CNN in 2014 as one of the "CNN 10: Visionary Women," and has a great TED talk you can view here.
