More about Kimberly Bryant

Kimberly Bryant is the founder of Black Girls Code a nonprofit with a mission to teach girls of color the technology skills they need to succeed and flourish in the 21st century. Bryant was born in 1967 in Memphis, Tennessee and has described herself as a girly-girl who enjoyed playing with dolls. Originally Bryant planned to become a lawyer, but she had excellent grades in math and science courses. At the urging of a high school guidance counselor, she decided to study electrical engineering and computer science. The inspiration for Black Girls Code came out of a combination of experiences that culminated in a thriving non-profit. Bryant has said that she felt isolated with so few engineering classmates who looked like her. Her middle school-aged daughter attended a computer science camp, and in 2010 Bryant attended a conference on women in corporate leadership. These two events lit the spark for Bryant to launch what would become Black Girls Code.
