How do we encourage more women and girls into cyber security? Kara Sprague is Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at F5, a multi-cloud application services and security company. She believes that we need to re-brand cyber-security to make it more appealing to women and girls.

Kara began her fascination with STEM when her father brought home the family's first computer. She quickly became the go-to person at school for any computer-related issues. Kara started her career in a technical role at Oracle but made the decision to pivot into consultancy. She has plenty to share about her transition from an individual contributor to a leader and mentor, and how we can all do our part to make things better in the world.

Between 2015 and 2022 Kara spent time on the board of Girls Who Code, an organization that seeks to increase the number of girls moving into computer science. In this role, she was able to see real positive change in how girls were encouraged into the field.

Join us every episode with hosts Suchi Srinivasan & Corin Lines from BCG to hear meaningful conversations with women in digital, technology, and business.
