TEDx: Black Girls Code
TEDx: The Risks of Failure Are Not Equitably Distributed
TEDx: Planting Seeds of Innovation
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 traces the history of how minorities have shaped our technological culture and the importance of amplifying their innovations of the future.
Kimberly Bryant the founder of social movement Black Girls CODE will share her journey as what she calls an “accidental social entrepreneur” and the lessons learned along the way in shaping a new paradigm for women and girls of color in the technology industry. She will explore how recognizing our innate power to become change agents in our own lives and the lives of others by pushing through traditional boundaries and perceived limitations can help us drive change in our world.
