Online • April 3, 2019

In this Jam Session, Reshma Saujani and Kristy Wallace will discuss the ways in which we can be brave, not perfect.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

In a book inspired by her popular TED talk, New York Times bestselling author Reshma Saujani empowers women and girls to embrace imperfection and bravery. In Brave not Perfect, Reshma shares powerful insights and practices to help us override our perfect girl training and make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life. Brave not Perfect is a bold, honest book for any woman that has felt crushed under the weight of her own expectations. For every woman that lives her life by the mantra that failure is simply not an option. In this Jam Session with Reshma Saujani, moderated by Kristy Wallace, we will discuss the ways in which we can be brave, not perfect in our lives.

A lifelong activist, Saujani was the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress. She is the author of three books, including Brave, Not Perfect, Women Who Don't Wait In Line and the New York Times Bestseller Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World. Reshma lives in New York City with her husband, Nihal, their son, Shaan, and their bulldog, Stanley.
