Saujani is the CEO of Girls Who Code which launched in the United States in 2012. The non-profit organization has reached 185,000 girls helping in nearly every stage of their educational journey. She is also a best-selling author of “Brave, Not Perfect,” viral Ted talk and a lifelong activist.

Celebrity President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, said:

“Reshma is bridging the gap in the historically male-dominated technology industry.”

“She is evolving the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does, inspiring a whole new generation of girls and women to bravely pursue this field. Because she is a game-changing visionary, she is the perfect godmother for a game-changing ship like Celebrity Apex.”

In addition, Celebrity will also collaborate with Girls Who Code to offer educational coding programs as part of the cruise line’s Camp at Sea S.T.E.M. experiences onboard Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Edge, along with related experiential offerings and products.
