Urbanime Introduces “Open Spaces” A Black & Brown STEM Initiative From Harlem To Hollywood

January 8, 2022

Urbanime, a Culture company, presents a year-long STEM initiative called “Open Spaces.”

Open Spaces aims to fill the gap between retention and representation in which Black and Brown Folx can create an identity through STEM.

STEM awareness is important to the Culture.

As an example, if technology advances without a diverse view, we will not only have to fight systemic bias but programmatic bias as well.

Open Spaces will highlight how Black and Brown Folx have historically contributed to STEM while also proving how STEM can encourage rewarding futures.

With multiple facets programmed throughout the year, Open Spaces will feature events and conversations (mixers, listening parties, Hackathon), an original content drop, and more.

The launch of Open Spaces is set for February of 2022 and will kick off with a month-long celebration of Black Women in Tech.
