Empowering Women and Youth in the Face of Emerging Technologies | Lesly Goh | TEDxBostonCollege


“A girl is worth nothing. That is what I was told for 17 years of my life. It was hard for me to accept, and even harder for me to ignore.” Lesly Goh, the Chief Technology Officer of the World Bank, explains how technology changed her life and led her to where she is today. Lesly was previously the Financial Services Industry Lead for Microsoft Asia Pacific. She is thought of as a leader in the industry, especially in FinTech and the use of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technologies as a new frontier for disrupting the traditional business model in Financial Services. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
