Black Women and Girls in Computing Roundtable: Executive Brief
Published on 11/21/2016
In August 2016, representatives from more than 40 non-profit, industry, media, education, and policy organizations gathered for a Black Women and Girls in Computing Roundtable, hosted by NCWIT and Google, to discuss influence, intersectionality, and media messaging. Participants reported increased awareness about the importance of encouraging and supporting black women and girls through tangible resources and actions. And, in the months following the convening, many attending organizations have collaborated on ways to increase opportunities in computing education and tech in the Black communities.
