Launched in 2011, Black Girls CODE (BGC) is devoted to showing the world that Black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to communities through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer programming and technology to girls from underrepresented communities in technology areas such as web design, robotics, gaming, mobile app development and more.  By cultivating the next generation of coders we hope to grow the number of women of color in technology and give underrepresented girls a chance to become the future leaders in technology and the masters of their technological worlds.  We thrive on working in a collaborative, fast-paced environment. We represent a diversity of backgrounds, a wealth of experience and a lot of fun.
