She’d never written a line of code in her life -- but she had the guts to take on one of tech’s biggest problems. Meet Reshman Saujani: a daughter of refugees, a Yale Law graduate, a former Wall Street lawyer, and an ex-candidate for Congress. Today, she runs Girls Who Code, an organization she founded to disrupt the tech talent pipeline, by closing the gender gap. Through all of it, she’s learned that sometimes the best way to succeed is to fail. The Venture is hosted by Ashley Milne-Tyte.
