The Origin of Girls Who Code

Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Reshma Saujani founded Girls Who Code at a low point in her professional life, after leaving an unfulfilling law career and then embarking on an unsuccessful run for Congress. But those setbacks set the stage for her next move. During her Democratic primary campaign, she noticed that all the computer science classes she visited were filled with boys. So she decided to build a movement to prepare girls for lucrative and impactful careers in tech.
