Our next guest is Mads Grummet, CEO of GirledWorld, an organisation that’s ewpowered more than 20,000 high-school girls lifting their aspirations towards careers in STEM. A passionate advocate for equality, Mads is the mother of 4-teenage girls herself & in this episode we cover everything from life as an early stage founder, changing careers & starting studying again, what it’s like to grow a business & how she thinks about leadership in the 21st century.
