Let’s Continue the Work: Black History Always

As we close Black History Month, we look back at all the Black/African-American women and men that we highlighted for their work to change the computer science industry, and acknowledge Black History Month is more than a month. #BlackHistoryAlways

CS Leaders Highlighted for 2021 Black History Month

We recognize that our effort of highlighting Black/African-American women and men in the tech industry, specifically in CS, is truly endless. Additionally, we acknowledge that Black History Month is so much more than a month. As the year progresses, our efforts will continue with uplifting and highlighting Black/African-American women and men that are changing the computer science industry.
