Bravery In A Remote World

Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does. Since her viral TED Talk, “Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection” resonated worldwide, Reshma has been on a mission to inspire women to leave socially-ingrained perfectionism behind and rewire themselves for braver, bolder lives. Reshma’s international bestselling book, award winning podcast, and weekly newsletter are taking the Brave, Not Perfect movement to the next level, building a powerful community of women and allies finding joy through bravery. Reshma will discuss how Brave, Not Perfect can inspire us all to rise out of this crisis stronger. For this talk she will be joined by Zeryn Sarpangal, Chief Financial and People Officer, Code For America.
