Founder and CEO
Eva Prakash is a sophomore at Stanford University and a Stanford AI4ALL 2016 alum. She founded GIRL 2.0 in order to empower girls to learn to code and become leaders in technology. Eva hopes to address the gender gap by getting girls excited about technology as early as possible and making them believe that computer science is no longer just a boys club.
Neal Prakash is a junior at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. He strongly believes that men need to be a part of the diversity in tech conversation and play an active role in creating an inclusive environment. He also believes part of the problem is that women are discouraged to pursue computer science because it seems "boring" and "geeky." In actuality, tech is all about creative problem-solving, and Neal thinks we need to rebrand technology in a way that speaks to both men and women.
Hannah Sidhu is a senior at UC Berkeley. Living in Silicon Valley, coding is an extremely valuable skill to have. However, she has actively seen girls shy away from STEM classes because they are male dominated. Hannah wants to change this perception and create a culture where girls not only feel interested in learning how to code, but also empowered to code. She hopes to bring these girls the necessary resources and guidance they need to succeed.
Director of Programming
Achyuth Vivek is a high school student at Basis Independent Silicon Valley. He believes that the tech world should be a lot more diverse and inclusive to underrepresented groups. Through better communication of the real wonders of technology, such as problem solving and improving quality of life, STEM education and careers can be made much more appealing to underrepresented groups. Achyuth thinks the increased inclusion and participation of presently underrepresented groups will result in a more innovative future.
Director of Outreach
Zoe is passionate about supporting girls in their journey through the tech world. She believes that all students, regardless of gender or social status, should have the opportunity to learn about technology. She wants girls to partake in tech conversations and challenge societal stereotypes. Zoe believes in order for AI to change the world, the people building AI related applications need to be as diverse as the people using them.
