Interested in the “intersectionality of race and gender in computing”? Ready to create (and be a part of) a community of Black women in tech? You’re in luck — the inaugural Black Women in Computing conference is coming to D.C. this weekend.

The conference, which begins this Friday night and continues through the weekend, will focus on “Honoring Our Past, Celebrating Our Present and Looking into Our Future.” Participants will continue with the work and discussion on topics about race and computing that was initially begun at a workshop in January 2016.

The event is being held at Howard University. It’s all organized by The Research Coalition for Black Women & Girls, with sponsorship via the National Science Foundation, Intel, the Anita Borg Institute and Capital One.

According to the organizers, the event has three main goals:

1) To validate and delve deeper into the strategies and plan of action as defined by participants in the inaugural Black Women in Computing workshop;

2) To cross-reference those analyses with any new or unexplored intersectional experiences of black women in CS and

3) To lay the foundation for a larger, international conference for black women in computing, across all sectors.

Interested? Make haste to the Eventbrite page to snag a ticket!
