Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. With their 7-week Summer Immersion Program, 2-week specialized Campus Program, after school Clubs, and a 13-book New York Times best-selling series, they are leading the movement to inspire, educate, and equip young women with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.

By the end of the 2018 academic year, Girls Who Code will have reached over 90,000 girls in all 50 states and several US territories and is on the way to reaching gender parity in entry-level tech jobs in the US by 2027.
