TED Talk Recap: ‘Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection’

On May 31st , over 100 attendees from seven different companies joined BWT for an engaging interactive online event.

Members of BWT shared ideas and life experiences after watching Reshma Saujani ‘s motivational TED Talk, “Teach girls bravery, not perfection”,  about the opposing ways that men and women are socialized and the effect that it has on their careers.   The event featured an online screening of the TED talk, followed by a moderated discussion.

The feedback from the event was overwhelmingly positive.  Both women and men appreciated the anonymous environment by using the whiteboard to explore the topic in an honest and open way.

Watch for more events in the future!
