This past week, I shared thoughts in an article for TIME.com about raising girls who succeed in tech. As a parent, you want your child to succeed in the world. Growing up, I’m not sure that my parents intentionally made an effort to drive a message of gender neutrality, but each of them encouraged and engaged me in their own unique, individual interests, hobbies and knowledge. I believe kids, regardless of gender, love to experience this and spend time with their parents regardless of whether it is a male or female centric activity. I shared my experience with this growing up, along with the five takeaway lessons I learned on how to prepare a child (especially a girl) to be prepared for their future career in tech and beyond.
