For many years, Black people have fought for a seat at the table in their respective industries, but being the only Black techie in the office or at a meetup is still the norm. The lack of representation has left many Black technologists without mentors or support systems to help them grow. We Build Black started in 2016 as a small meetup group to bring Black technologists together and the community has since grown into a network of thousands.
She Builds Black (SBB) is a network of Black women technologists who come together to grow their careers by learning from and supporting their peers. The goal of SBB is to educate, inspire, mentor, foster deep connections, and empower women to embrace the current tech industry as creators and builders. Volunteers from SBB organize the annual Mavens I/O conference.Join SBB
