    Bryant was honored for her work with BGC, a nonprofit she created in 2011 to help young girls learn computer programming and entrepreneurship. Since the program’s launch, the biotechnology and engineering professional has trained more than 1,500 girls “to work in technology fields such as robotics, video game design, mobile phone application development and computer programming.”
