EP233 Mother of Invention with Katrine Marçal

We live in a world shaped by gender. For too long, we have underestimated the consequences of sexism in our economy, and the way it holds all of us—both women and men—back. In Mother of Invention, bestselling author Katrine Marçal sets the record straight and shows how, in a time of crisis, the ideas and ingenuity of women are crucial for our future. Today Katrine joins the show to discuss the economic impact of women, specifically how the inclusion of women is the missing key to innovation for modern business. 

Listen in as we dive deep on the topic of gender bias, explaining how gender bias can actually delay the innovations that we now take for granted. You will learn how to maintain an innovative spirit and inspire others to do the same, as well as how you can amplify diverse voices to ensure everyone is able to share their knowledge, ideas, and opinions.

Innovation and tech is really what drives the economy, and there is this narrative that historically everything important ever was invented by a man… and it’s time to rewrite women back in the story of innovation.” – Katrine Marçal
