Pitchfork Economics with Nick Hanauer

Millions of Americans lost their jobs because of the pandemic. While men have returned to their pre-pandemic level of employment, a million women are still missing from the workforce.

Reshma Saujani, the Founder of Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms, has a plan to get us there.Reshma Saujani is the founder of Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms.

E149: How I Taught Millions Of Women The Most Important Skill: Girls Who Code Founder: Reshma Saujani

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

Reshma is the founder of Girls Who Code, one of the most influential non-profits in the world which has introduced millions of women to coding and the tech industry. She is also the author of Pay Up, a book about how to get women further in the workplace. Reshma was initially a prophet of the thinking that women could have it all, if only they tried twice as hard as everyone else they could achieve anything they wanted to. Now, she’s changed her mind. Trying to run an organisation with over 500 employees while looking after a young family full-time simply proved too much. Women simply have too much stacked against them having to juggle work and family life to properly pursue their careers without special consideration. What really stands out about Reshma is the fact that having built an enterprise that was on its way to changing the world, she had the humility to change her mind about major parts of her philosophy. Reshma’s story is one of how to realise and bounce back from your mistakes, no matter who you are or how far you’ve come. It takes a lot of courage to do that, but courage is something that Reshma has never had in short supply. Topics: Growing up as an immigrant University dept Running for congress Starting Girls Who Code The difficult parts of building girls who code What would you have done differently? Fixing the system not the women How is your mental health? How do you decide what to say yes or no to? Empowering women in a practical way What does success look like in your future?

Reshma Saujani: The Importance of Teaching Girls How to Successfully Fail - R4R 300

The Running for Real Podcast

Reshma Saujani says that her best thinking is done when she goes for a run. Those thoughts have led to her founding Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms; writing the best-selling Brave, Not Perfect and her new book, Pay Up: The Future of Women and Work; becoming the first Indian-American woman to run for the U.S. Congress; and being included on the Fortune 40 Under 40 list. When Reshma ran a marathon, it was because she’d just had a “really bad breakup.“ It was very much about healing and it was amazing,” she recalls. It also made an impact on her far greater than recovering from a broken romance. It was “the beginning of my journey,” she says. “In many ways it was the first time I really stuck with it, and I started really building that resiliency.” Resiliency is something that girls need but aren’t typically taught, just one of the issues that Reshma confronts in her fight for women, girls, and the most vulnerable in society, as she and Tina discuss in this episode.

You Shouldn’t Have to Choose Between Work and Motherhood With Reshma Saujani

Good Inside with Dr. Becky

Working moms are burnt out. And it’s not our fault.

Next Question with Katie Couric

When Reshma Saujani started Girls Who Code in 2012, she was on a mission to close the gender gap in technology. Now, she’s on a new mission: to bridge the support gap for women and bring more moms back to the workforce. “Women are in crisis. And I think we realized that no one is coming to save us,” Reshma says. On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Reshma Soujani talks about her new book, “Pay Up: The Future of Women and Work and Why It’s Different Than You Think.” They talk about the origin story of the book, the state of women’s professional progress, the impact the pandemic has had on their careers, mental health, and lives, and why there’s no time like the present to redesign the workplace. “Never waste a good crisis,” Reshma says. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

#48 Reshma Saujani (Girls Who Code) on Finding Your Worth Failure After Failure

Plucking Up with Liz Bohannon

Before founding Girls Who Code, a nonprofit that has served 450,000 girls and has reached 500 million people in the U.S., Reshma Saujani went through a seemingly endless stream of rejection and failure. In our conversation, Reshma talks about growing up in the midwest as the daughter of refugee parents from Uganda, her valiant 3 time attempt to get into Yale, and how having multiple miscarriages made her question her worth as a woman. On the show, Reshma also tells us about her failed aspirations in politics (running for Congress in 2010) and how this chapter in her life was the impetus for making an impact in another arena — closing the gender gap in technology. -- Check out quick, tasty, and healthy foods at Real Good Foods!
