A space for black women to learn and explore technology.
blackgirl.tech started in 2014 as an organisation that aimed to provide a safe space for Black* girls and women in the tech industry and those coming into the tech industry. Since then, it has grown into a social enterprise that not only provides a safe space for Black women, but that aims to make tech a safer space for Black women and girls.* When we say Black, we are spesifically referencing those who are of African decent and who identify as Black racially (including Black-British, Black Carribbean, African-American, Afro-Latinx, and Bi-racial people who have at least one Black parent).
The goal of blackgirl.tech isn’t to make everyone a coder but to introduce coding to those who may have never been exposed and to create an environment that fosters sharing, learning and growth.
It was refreshing to help people learn and interesting to see from a beginner's perspective.
Great space to learn ask questions in a non-judgmental space.
