Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection

screen-shot-2016-03-10-at-2-01-52-pm

This is a TED talk by Reshma Saujani who believes that we are raising girls to be perfect and boys to be brave. Before you stop reading and think this is a message that just applies to parents, it’s a wider message than that that rings true for business and society in general. She’s the founder of Girls Who Code. Reshma has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. “I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.”It’s just over 12 minutes long. Watch it here.
