On this episode of The Elevate Podcast, we talk with Ali Karbassi.

Ali Karbassi is the Founder and CEO of We All Code is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to sparking curiosity in coding among kids aged 7 to 17, with a particular focus on girls, students of color, and low-income students. 

Ali founded We All Code in 2013 after 10 years in the corporate sector, working in the advertising and tech industries, as well as a startup focused on the “Internet of Things.”

Additionally, Ali runs the monthly sold-out public speaking event Ignite Talks Chicago, where 10 speakers have 5 minutes to share their passions with the audience, while slides auto-advance behind them every 15 seconds.

In this episode, Ali and I talk about finding your passion, focusing on creating instead of consuming, and the importance of a supportive community.
