STEM Career Day: Black Girls Code Event

On October 11th, in honor of International Day of the Girl, the YWCA and Black Girls Code hosted an event for girls of color interested in careers in science, technology, engineering and math. The panel consisted of a dozen accomplished black and latina women who were engineers, astronauts, scientists, physicists and mathematicians. We were joined by the Brooklyn Borough President and Councilmember Laurie Cumbo and well as representatives from Google and Black Enterprise. Over 100 girls attended the event!
