Estamos educando a nuestras niñas para ser perfectas y educando a nuestros niños para ser valientes, dice Reshma Saujani, la fundadora de "Niñas que codifican" (Girls Who Code). Saujani ha asumido la responsabilidad de socializar a niñas para que asuman riesgos y aprendan a programar, dos habilidades necesarias para hacer avanzar la sociedad. Para realmente innovar, no podemos dejar atrás a la mitad de nuestra población, nos dice. "Necesito que cada uno de Uds. diga a cada chica que conozcan que se sientan cómodas con la imperfección".
