Jodi Bondi Norgaard speaks on the need to close the gender gaps in our workforce by exposing children to diverse role models. Girls and boys need to break free from the stereotypes that are holding them back. Girls need encouragement to embrace their strength and assertiveness as much as boys need validation to be vulnerable and nurturing.
