[Virtual] April Womenar | Brave Not Perfect - Getting to Equal

April 29, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM (MDT)


Brave Not Perfect - Getting to Equal

Sponsored by: 


Girls are often guided at a young age to avoid risk and strive for perfection. This means that girls grow up to be women that are often afraid to fail or try something new that they are not good at. But exploring, trying and failing is a necessary part of life and a source of valuable life lessons.The April Womenar builds upon Reshma Saujani’s book Brave Not Perfect themes and Accenture’s Getting to Equal research to discuss some bold and brave actions that we can take forward in our (temporarily virtual) workplace and our daily lives to improve equality for Women in Technology.
