Kimberly Bryant, 51, a former electrical engineer, started a Saturday coding class for her computer-whiz daughter, which morphed into Black Girls Code (BGC), a nonprofit launched in 2011. Kimberly’s goal for Black Girls Code is to train one million “Girl Scouts of Technology” by 2040. Full steam ahead! BGC holds workshops, expos and hackathons with plans to expand to 41 domestic and international chapters by 2022 — breaking barriers in gender and race in the tech business. Disrupting starts young!

The Image of Aging Gets a Much Needed Face Lift
What’s in an image? Too often, when it comes to people over fifty — ageism. AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Communications and Marketing Officer Martha Boudreau moderated the seminar “Shaping a New Image of Aging,” at the Advertising Week New York conference in October. The subject: Reinventing the imagery of aging. Panelists Cindy Gallop, CEO and founder of If We Ran The World; Andrew Delaney, director of creative content, Getty Images; Robert Love, VP and editor in chief of AARP the Magazine and Chief Creative Intelligence Officer Suresh Nair of Grey had a lively discussion about the differences between the common, clichéd stereotypes of aging and the current reality of older people living vibrant, full lives. As Gallop quipped “Let’s live old” — and celebrate experience and the wealth of talent in aging!
