Bianca Tops HBCU's List

Girls Inc. is proud to announce that Girls Inc. alumna Bianca Bailey has been named to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities annual Top 30 Under 30 list. In addition to this accomplishment, Bianca, who received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 2012 from Howard University, was the only African American woman in 2014 to receive a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Bianca’s work and her focus as a Ph.D. student is on using black and green tea leaves to purify and clean water – an area that she has helped advance in Sudan, Kenya, Abu Dhabi, and Nepal. 

Bianca grew up in a single-parent household after losing her mother at a young age. At Girls Inc., she felt supported in our all-girl environment, and she discovered her passion for science and math through hands-on activities. When Girls Inc. introduced her to a female engineer, Bianca knew she found a mentor and someone who would be in her corner to help her navigate typically male-dominated STEM fields. As a participant in a Girls Inc. entrepreneurship camp, Bianca gained the skills to combine science and business. 

Watch Bianca describe how Girls Inc. shaped her STEM career at a young age.

Girls Inc. Joins Google's Made With Code

Girls Inc. is excited to share our support of an important new initiative driven by Google. Technology is a critical part of our lives and we know that the future of our girls relies on their ability to adapt to innovation.

Computer Science and coding are quickly becoming the new literacy, but less than 1% of high school girls see Computer Science as part of their future.

Made with Code, a Google social initiative, creates a coding culture for girls based on creativity and strives to inspire millions of girls to experience the power of code. The goal is to demonstrate how coding can help girls pursue, and reach, their dreams. Made with Code encourages girls to write their own future and show them that it can take them anywhere.

Read more about how Girls Inc. and Google are helping girls create and innovate with code and read about how Girls Inc. girls are learning to code in Affect Magazine.
