Brief Biography

Christina Lewis is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of All Star Code, a computer science non-profit that empowers Black and Latino young men with skills, networks and mindsets to become entrepreneurs and succeed in the technology sector.

Founded in 2013, All Star Code partners with industry-leading companies, including Google, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs and LinkedIn, to host “Summer Intensive” educational programs in New York City and Pittsburgh, PA. The program’s progressive curriculum is built on the principles of “daring greatly,” “celebrating failure,” and “telling your story.”

Christina has shared her unique perspective on creating economic opportunity through tech as a keynote speaker and panellist at influential events hosted by: The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, J.P. Morgan, Ivy League universities, and West Point, among others. The success and growth of All Star Code has been profiled by several top-tier news outlets, including ABC, Fortune, Fast Company and Business Insider. Christina has been honored as a leading social entrepreneur by the Obama Administration (“Champion of Change for STEM Access”), Jet Magazine (“top 40 under 40”) and The Root (“17 women in STEM you should know”).

Christina’s 2012 memoir, Lonely at the Top, reflects on the journey and impact of her father, Reginald F. Lewis, who was a Wall Street pioneer and the first Black man to own a billion-dollar U.S. company. His success story is the inspiration for All Star Code.

Prior to founding All Star Code, Christina was an award-winning journalist, including five years as a staff writer for The Wall Street Journal. Her writing has been published in The New York Times Magazine and other publications.

Christina is a member of the Board of the Reginald F. Lewis Foundation and Chair of the Class of 2002 Associates Committee for Harvard College, her alma mater. She is also on Hunter College’s Computer Science Advisory Board, and is an angel investor and advisor to other entrepreneurs.
