Paula Moreno was the first Afro-Colombia woman and the youngest person to lead a cabinet-level ministry in her native Colombia. Now, she is working to empower other young women to be the next generation of women in technology.
“I create a program in my organization called Innovation Girls. We help to incubate in one of the most excluded and violent places in Colombia. We help to build robotic schools and we have girls learning programming and learning to create solutions in their communities. And I really love how they rediscovered their role in their society—as women, how they can build tools to really make the society work in a different way.”
