fIVE Female Entrepreneurship Podcast: in conversation with Lisa Ihde, computer science student, author & equal opportunity officer
In today's episode, we're pleased to welcome Lisa Ihde. Lisa is a computer science student, author, equal opportunity advocate, aspiring founder, part of the Forbes 30 Under 30, and much more. In this episode, Franziska Mattner talks to Lisa about her path to studying computer science, the (still) low percentage of women in this field of study, and how this can be increased. Lisa talks about how she was one of the few women to succeed in computer science despite various hurdles, and why female role models, networks and more visibility in particular can help others on their way, emphasizing how important it is to introduce children to computer science and technology in a playful way at a young age to encourage a natural approach in this field. Lisa shares valuable insights into her experiences as a book author of computer science books for kids and teens, her involvement with the Hasso Plattner Institute, and CreateF - The Female Founders Show.
