By launching during National Coding Week Myavana hopes to expose underrepresented groups to coding and to increase digital literacy in a novel and engaging way – inspiring women and girls to become coders or computer scientists, to help solve problems that they are facing in their own lives… similar to what Myavana's founder has done. The brand aims to educate about textured hair needs as well as technology career paths. The Web3 experience will be available through August 2024.
Candace Harris founded Myavana in 2012, leveraging 17 years of experience in computer science to develop AI haircare technology that analyzes the variables of hair strands and hair products to produce personalized hair care plans that support healthy hair and hair growth. She is a pioneer within a space that is overwhelmingly homogenous and non-inclusive, carving out solutions for BIPOC women, a group often ignored.
National Coding Week
National Coding Week returns this September 2023 for its 10th year with this season's theme being Artificial Intelligence (AI). The aim is to take a closer look at the benefits, concerns and implications of AI. September 18-25, 2023 are the official dates of National Coding Week 2023. The hope is that National Coding Week inspires both children and adults to consider careers in technology and to increase digital literacy.
