Africa Teen Geeks' Lindiwe Matlali: True leaders seek impact, not accolades
Play • 37 min
Africa's largest computer science non-profit looks to reshape opportunity in Africa by teaching kids to code and creating a pipeline of tech leaders and entrepreneurs. Matlali built this organisation from scratch, with bootstrapping and cold calls, as she worked to transform mindsets and curriculums, and bridge equity gaps. She talks to Meet the Leader about how tech training and entrepreneurship can reshape Africa. She also discusses the power of humility in making collaboration and making change happen and the lessons she's learned from her own mentor, Google’s Marian Croak, about being present. Those lessons can help anyone be a better mentor to a new generation.
