In 2015, Teresa White became the first woman, and the first African-American, to hold the title of president at Aflac in its nearly 60-year history. She credits her success with her ability to write computer code, not only because it’s an unusual skill for an African-American woman but because, she says, it gave her confidence.

Everyday White leverages three practical concepts from coding—logic, patience and attention to detail. “Learning how to code also taught me that I don’t have to think like everyone else,” White says. “For me, coding was liberating. I could be creative and still solve a problem but I didn’t have to fit into a box.”
