Our Mission, Our Vision, Our Work

Our Mission

Our Vision

Black in Computing strives to create unbiased and welcoming education and work environments that include Black people where we can be our authentic selves to learn and work without experiencing racism and bias.

Deliver technical programming that features Black professionals and researchers in computing.

Leadership Development

Provide tools and resources to support scholars and practitioners in their education and career advancement.


Partner with institutions and organizations to identify policies and practices that perpetuate racism. Work with institutions and organizations to redress these policies and practices.
