Description


BGC Logo

The Los Angeles Chapter of Black Girls Code invites you to join us for a spirited and lively evening of conversation and connection, featuring some of the Los Angeles area's leading voices of Women of Color in STEM.


This event will be an educational experience for girls, between the ages of 7 and 17, and their parents/guardians. They will hear from a panel of women working in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM).


Many thanks to The Institute of Engineering Community and Cultural Competence (IEC3) for their support for this event. IEC3 is aiding in the effort to eliminate the gender gap in STEM by providing culturally- and socially-relevant training and research to help pave the way for more women of color to enter STEM fields. To this end, IEC3’s goal is to better prepare middle school teachers, schools, and the communities in which they exist to foster STEM-learning opportunities for female African American and Latina middle-school students.
