Who We Are
We are a community of tech women interested in changing the narrative around what it means to be a computing scientist. Started by a group of three women in 2016, blackcomputeHER (pronounced 'black computer') seeks to amplify the presence, opportunities, and voices for black women in computing, and tech, more broadly. While gender and race are the most obvious and relatable distinctions among us, those constructs represent a slither of who we are as people. We join the tech conversation, head on, by offering deep technical knowledge, invaluable resources for professional development, and research expertise in support of true tech inclusion.
