It's hard to let go of perfection at this time where it often feels like we have little control over our lives, but being kind to yourself is even more important during these difficult times. This week, Reshma sits down with Melinda Gates of the Gates Foundation for a conversation about being brave during a pandemic, diversity in tech, and standing up for increased access to birth control.

This conversation is part of a speaker series for the Girl Who Code Summer Immersion Program. You can follow Reshma on twitter and instagram @ReshmaSaujani or join the Brave, Not Perfect Facebook group:
