Dr. Tarika Barrett is the proud daughter of immigrant parents who, through generations, instilled the value of education in her. Taika lives this legacy every day in her work as CEO of Girls Who Code.

Fighting for education equity is Tarika’s life mission. She spent her early years traveling between Jamaica and the US; a learning experience that she credits with opening up her worldview. At college, she became involved in grass-roots activism and began her journey as an advocate of a high-quality education for all. Tarika went on to co-found the first non-screened software engineering school in New York. She faced pushback from investors but insisted that the school should be open to anyone, and not limit itself by having entrance exams. 

Girls Who Code is an international nonprofit organization that aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science. They have reached over 580,000 women, girls, and non-binary people worldwide.

Join us every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Corin Lines from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women in digital, technology, and business.
