Girls Who Code Creator on Moving Past Failures and Losses


Apr 5 2022 • 42 mins

Activist, author, and founder Reshma Saujani knows what it’s like to struggle. From experiencing racism in her childhood to going through two very public congressional race losses, she’s had her fair share of lows. Reshma tells all and tells us that these failures have allowed her to find new paths towards achieving what’s most important to her—a meaningful impact on society. First, it was with Girls Who Code, which she founded and led for over 10 years, and now with the Marshall Plan for Moms.  Click here to buy Reshma’s new book, Pay Up: The Future of Women and Work (and Why It's Different Than You Think) Click here to listen to the full episode of The Double-Edged Sword of Being a Perfectionist from Founder’s Journal.
