Since 2011, Black Girls Code has worked to build awareness and enthusiasm about STEM careers among a group that is often overlooked. Founder Kimberly Bryant tells For Harriet that with the tech giant's support, they will be able to expand on their operations and give girls a closer look into the field.
"This space will allow BGC to create and incubate programs for our tech divas in our office which will double as a teaching space for us," says Bryant. "And the proximity to Google's headquarters provides countless opportunities for our girls to envision a future in tech- to touch it, feel it, experience it, and eventually be it."

"We're building much more than just a pipeline," says Bryant. "We're creating future leaders for companies such as Google and providing real access to an unrivaled pool of talent and creativity."
Founder Kimberly Bryant travels with BGC around the country to provide Black girls between the ages of 7 and 17 the opportunity to get hands on experience with coding and computer programming. These offices will serve as a hub for the East Coast events.
