Girl Code San Francisco

Sep 9, 2016

Girl Code San Francisco

Last night Westwood Westwood’s Managing Editor, Zarna Surti, sat down with some of the most influential women in San Francisco’s tech scene to talk about redefining digital spaces. The panel consisted of Heather Faison, Lisa Williams (who you might also recognize from this week’s feature!), Robyn Exton, and Besse Gardner. Taking place at the Clift Hotel, we made sure to jot down a few of our favorite quotes, just for you.

“My passion is connecting people to causes they truly care about because I do believe that technology has the power and potential to accelerate social change.”

-Heather Faison, Google

“If you have something unique to offer and can show it creatively right off the bat, just go for it and put yourself out there.”

-Lisa Williams, Lisa Says Gah

“Interviews aren’t you answering questions, but you pitching and choosing what you want them to remember.”

-Robyn Exton, Her

“Nothing is permanent. You can and should always experiment.”

-Besse Gardner, Nest
