The words of leaders we admire:

"What would you do if you were not afraid?"

-- Sheryl Sandberg, COO Facebook


"Women and men are going to think differently and collaborate differently about what we are making and why we are doing it. We need those voices in this innovation. We need more technical people in our world and our country."

"Working on kids having hands-on experiences with this stuff and then have them begin to understand how to be not just consumers of technology but how to be makers."

-- Megan Smith, Chief Technology Officer of the United States of America


“If you are someone who feels like you might fail at something and you don’t want to do it because of that, just remember me. The vast majority of people that I know in the world, who are incredibly successful, they’ve got this piece in their brain that’s saying, ‘I’m a failure. I’ll always be a failure. I’m not good enough.’ But the reason they’re incredibly successful is they’ve got this piece in their brain that’s says, ‘don’t listen to that part, just go forward. Do stuff. Make a difference. Work hard. Dream.’“

-- Maria Klawe, President, Harvey Mudd College

 


“I want to be known as an advocate for women and girls. I see a future where the world is more equal for women and girls than it is today.”

-- Melinda Gates


"Everybody's got to learn to code early. Part of what you have to do is to introduce this with the ABCs and the colors, particularly focusing on girls' participation."

-- Barack Obama


"I'm often asked by parents what advice can I give them to help get their children interested in science? I have only one bit of advice. Get out of their way. Children are born curious... you put things on their midst that help them explore! Help'em explore!"

-- Neil DeGrasse Tyson
