10:55 How Anna defines confidence.
“I co-founded and scaled an Ed Tech company and in that role, I noticed a huge gender gap in the industry. We had a goal of employing a diverse and inclusive development team and it was so hard to hire and retain female software developers. There was simply a limited pool of candidates. So that’s where I saw the need for coaching support, to help women enter tech, stay in tech, thrive in tech.” – Anna Gradie
