About this talk

The Red Hat® Coffee Hour series is a bi-weekly videocast featuring luminaries from technology, society and the world of STEM. Topics for discussion will include governmental and societal impacts of technology, open source in Sci/Tech/Med., as well as the role of technology and work/life balance. As Kimberly Bryant, founder of Black Girls Code, began her education in computer science she observed “... as I pursued my studies, feeling culturally isolated: few of my classmates looked like me. While we shared similar aspirations and many good times, there’s much to be said for making any challenging journey with people of the same cultural background. Adam Clater - Chief Architect, Red Hat - and Kimberly will discuss the ongoing challenges confronted by PoC in STEM and technology and how early education can help shrink the digital divide.
