Aminatou Sow

Aminatou Sow doesn't like it when people tell her she can't do something. After people told her women and technology don't mix she created an online meeting hub for women in technology. She also went to work at Google. She was born in Guinea and lived all over the world, before settling in New York City. She was named Forbes magazine's "30 under 30" in tech, and KQED's Women to Watch.

Debbie talks to Aminatou about her podcast and her career in tech. "I think that especially in tech we fetishize young people so much. Being the best at this thing at 30 is fine, but we're literally all idiots."
