ABOUT BLACK GIRLS CODE
Our mission at Black Girls Code (BGC) is to ensure that Black girls* believe they belong in tech and launch them with the skills, opportunities, and resources to lead. We partner with schools, companies, local organizations, and dedicated volunteers to offer a range of in-person and virtual learning opportunities that build the skills and relationships our girls need to thrive. Our eyes are ever-set upon launching one million Black girls into tech by 2040. 
*Identity is a spectrum of color and gender. If you want to learn tech and rectify that less than 2% of tech jobs are held by Black women, then BGC is for you.
These values guide, focus, and inspire our work:
BELONGING for Black girls, where they can be themselves and expect nurturing and acceptance
INNOVATION beginning with the verve and imagination of Black girls and ending with pioneering tech that helps everyone live better
JUSTICE through active solidarity with Black girls to fully access and seize resources and opportunities to thrive
IMPACT that propels and affirms individual lives and communities, thereby shaping industries to do the same
JOY that beckons, connects, and surges us toward excellence and possibility
