Who are their shared role models? What is Tim’s advice on surpassing struggles? Find out what happens when Apple CEO Tim Cook is interviewed by AiC Community Member and High School Senior Rebecca Kahn: aspirations.org/innovatortoinnovator.
Inspired by the upcoming 2018 NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing (AiC) celebrations, Apple and NCWIT present a new “Innovator to Innovator” series of personal essays and stories of innovation, as told by AiC Community members by way of conversations with Apple executives. Two innovators are given the opportunity to talk about their personal philosophies, past experiences, and pivotal influencers — and discuss their shared mission to increase the meaningful participation of women in computing.
AiC is supported by Apple’s lifetime partnership and commitment to change the public perception of who creates technology.
The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing program is supported nationally by Apple, AT&T, Bank of America, Bloomberg, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Intel, Microsoft, Motorola Solutions Foundation, Northrop Grumman, Qualcomm, and the Symantec Corporation.
