Brave, Not Perfect | Reshma Saujani

Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, the nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does. She is the author of three books, including Brave, Not Perfect, New York Times bestseller Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World, and Women Who Don’t Wait In Line. Her TED talk, “Teach girls, bravery not perfection,” has more than four million views and has sparked a worldwide conversation about how we’re raising our girls.

Reshma’s earned broad recognition for her work as an attorney, activist, and advocate for young women, including Fortune World’s Greatest Leaders; Fortune 40 Under 40; WSJ Magazine Innovator of the Year; Forbes Most Powerful Women Changing the World; Fast Company 100 Most Creative People; and Crain’s New York 40 Under 40, among others.

Join us today to hear how a young, outsider Indian girl in Chicago who was expected by her family to grow into a quiet, unassuming life, now regularly battles tech giants and thinks nothing of going to the White House to speak out for the rights and opportunities denied to young women. It’s a great conversation about navigating cultural and familial expectations, how things that initially appear to be devastating losses can actually lead to some truly unexpected opportunities, and the beauty of living brave, not perfect.
