Kimberly Bryant

Founder & Executive Director, Black Girls Code

The Most Creative People in business

After seeing the lack of diversity in the tech field and listening to her daughter complain about the unbalanced attention boys received over girls in her computer programming classes, Kimberly Bryant decided to create Black Girls Code. The nonprofit organization, which was founded in 2011, seeks to teach programming, electrical engineering, and other STEM fields to girls from underrepresented communities through after-school programs, workshops, camps, and hackathons.

Prior to launching the organization, Bryant worked in biotechnology, manufacturing, and engineering for various companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer products industries.
