Reshma Saujani | Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection

 

We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, she says, we cannot leave behind half of our population. "I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection."

 

Through her nonprofit, Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani initiates young women into the tech world. Her goal: one million women in computer science by 2020.

What did the girls in your group create? We'd love to see the work of their imaginations. Post photos and tag us @graceandgritbox!
