5 Things You Should Know About Reshma Saujani

Early Entry Deadline October 27 2017

Education activist Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of enterprising nonprofit Girls Who Code as well as an Executive Judge here at The Webbys. Her influence extends throughout the tech world, however.

Historically, the personal computer has been under the purview of “bro-grammers,” as Reshma would say. Today the number of female college graduates with a computer science degree is 18%—less than half that it was in the 1980s (37%). The noted absence of women in leadership roles in the tech world inspired Reshma to act: “Coding can help level the economic playing field and open a whole new world of potential for a generation of girls we’ve left behind.” Her company, Girls Who Code, seeks to remedy the gender disparity in the tech industry and see many more girls kick in the door.
