ELM Solutions Supports Black Girls Code

At ELM Solutions, we use complex technologies to solve big data problems, but each one of us started with a desire to design and build what we see on our screens. Unfortunately, not everyone has the kind of access or skills to harness the magic that is coding, and as good corporate citizens, it is our duty to act. Access to technology careers and education is disproportionately unavailable to black girls. Black Girls Code aims to rectify this, by providing afterschool classes, workshops, and community outreach that targets Black girls interested in technology, and turns that interest into a lifelong passion. 


About Black Girls CODE:
Our mission is to empower young women of color between the ages of 7-17 to embrace the current tech marketplace as builders and creators by introducing them to skills in computer programming and technology. Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails. Black Girls CODE has set out to prove to the world that girls of every color have the skills to become the programmers of tomorrow. By promoting classes and programs we hope to grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds. Black Girls CODE's ultimate goal is to provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040
