Good Conversation Featuring Reshma Saujani, CEO and Founder of Girls Who Code

Goodwin Procter invites you to the third installment of our "Good Conversation" series, featuring Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology. Ms. Saujani will discuss her vision of empowering women to be comfortable with being imperfect. She notes that young girls are taught to live up to an expectation of being "perfect, and pretty, and nice," while boys are expected to be "tough, and brave and strong." Ms. Saujani contends that if we equalize those expectations by encouraging girls — and women — to take risks then we "will raise a generation of women that is fierce."
