BLACK GIRLS CODE – INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION OF ENGINEERS

At this historic moment, we recognize the consequences of unfair treatment of minority communities in the United States, and we pledge to redouble our own commitment to racial equality and equal treatment under the law for all Americans.

We work in the world of technology and business, and are deeply and sadly aware that racial inequality, discrimination, and exclusion are major problems in that world, too. There can be no excuse, and we must all do better. DX’s sister company, Techonomy, has been privileged to welcome Black Girls Code Founder Kimberly Brant to its stage many times including at its recent Techonomy Virtual Summit and we are pleased to share this most recent interview below with our community. And we hope the perspectives and insights of Ms. Bryant will continue to inspire meaningful conversations and action.
