Keynoting Summit/2021 will be Reshma Saujani—founder & CEO of Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms as well an attorney, author, Congressional candidate, social activist and host of the award-winning podcast “Brave, Not Perfect.”
“The WP Engine Summit has become the premier event for WordPress marketers, developers and agencies,” said Eric Jones, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at WP Engine. “We are honored to be able to provide this digital forum for anyone interested in learning more about how WordPress can drive lasting impact to businesses and agencies of all sizes.

Featured Keynote Speaker Reshma Saujani
Reshma Saujani began her career as an attorney and activist, surging onto the political scene in 2010 as the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress. During the race, Reshma visited local schools and saw the gender gap in computing classes firsthand, which led her to create Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does.
She is the author of the international bestseller Brave, Not Perfect and the New York Times bestseller Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World. Reshma’s TED talk, “Teach girls, bravery not perfection,” has more than four million views and has sparked a worldwide conversation about how we’re raising our girls. She is also the host of the award-winning podcast “Brave, Not Perfect.”
During this live fireside chat, Reshma will answer questions and recount her personal breakthroughs and lessons learned while offering tips on ways to improve resiliency, take risks, and embark on new ideas.
