Our Founder

Reshma Saujani is the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code.

She began her career as an attorney and activist. In 2010, she surged onto the political scene as the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress. During the race, Reshma visited local schools and saw the gender gap in computing classes firsthand, which led her to start Girls Who Code. Reshma has also served as Deputy Public Advocate for New York City and ran a spirited campaign for Public Advocate in 2013.

To request Reshma as a speaker, please visit her Washington Speakers Bureau page.
