Founder Of Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani

She used to be a coding evangelist on a mission to diversify Big Tech. Now she wonders if the industry even wants women and people of color.

Reshma Saujani used to be a Big Tech evangelist. She raised a lot of money to build Girls Who Code, a celebrated organization that’s trained nearly half a million girls and young women in tech.

But in recent years, she’s come to question if companies like Google have the will to change. For the first time, she goes on the record to talk about retaliation she believed she experienced for publicly questioning Google’s values.
