In the early 20th century, Black engineers helped impact the way we consume, live, and work today. Through the years, a new generation of innovators that is enhancing the future in technology.
Helped paved the way for the advances in technology, the CodeWalker Institute honors Evelyn Boyd Granville, Roy L. Clay, Sr., Clarence “Skip” Ellis, Mark Dean, John Henry Thompson, the Founder of Black Girls Code, Kimberly Bryant, and Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Johnson Vaughan, the women who inspired the movie, Hidden Figures.
In tribute of Black History Month, the CodeWalker Institute salutes these pioneers for paving the engineering pathway that we all are on today. February isn’t only a time for us to honor African-American men and women in the past but those who have contributed to society as a whole.
Making history, the CodeWalker Institute serves the under represented in the engineering field. Standing alone in their career in sciences and technology, minorities in particular are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We help foster the growth and development of future black and brown leaders in technology. Used as a stepping stone, the CodeWalker Institute apprentices are paired with mentors, groomed as a developer, and start work with a year that is best fit according to the skill set. Conclusively, building wealth in the our communities, and professional development as a future leader in engineering.
