Reshma Saujani is the founder of Girls Who Code, a growing organization whose sole purpose is to close the gender gap in technological fields. Her strategy is to excite and equip young women, and part of that is accomplished by getting them hands-on experience and mentorship opportunities with Silicon Valley’s biggest brand names. She wants to reach one million girls by 2020, and that’s just the first chapter.
“I want to give girls the opportunity to be the next Mark Zuckerberg. I won’t be satisfied until I get every company in America to sign up and until I reach every girl in America.”
Saujani has the drive and connections to get it done. Click here to read about her program, her ambitions, and some of the young women who are already moving ahead with her vision.
Thank you, Reshma Saujani!
