Description


Join us for a special evening honoring Black Excellence & Achievement as we celebrate Black History Month!

This month, we present a unique opportunity to connect with the Bay's leading, young, diverse professionals, to discover more about the initiatives of BlackGirlsCode and to hear from accomplished black leaders that exemplify excellence in our community.

Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails. Black Girls CODE has set out to prove to the world that girls of every color have the skills to become the programmers of tomorrow!
