About this talk

Reclaiming our Space: Exploring the Contributions of People of Color in Technology Past and Present Have you ever heard of James West? How about Mark Dean? Probably not. Without James your phone wouldn’t have its microphone. Mark helped to develop the IBM PC, and holds one third of IBM’s original patents. When we talk about the development of technology, it’s rare that we discuss the past contributions from minorities or explore what it means for organizations such as Black Girls Code and other advocates who seek to create a more inclusive innovation space. In this brand new talk, Kimberly Bryant, Founder and CEO of Black Girls CODE, traces the history of how minorities have shaped our technological culture and the importance of amplifying their innovations of the future. Speaker: Kimberly Bryant, Founder + CEO, Black Girls CODE
