In this episode…

Although many school-going girls love STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and would love to venture into careers in these fields, few of them actually pursue those careers. The main reason behind this is that girls shy away from appearing smart in front of their peers and do not want to stand out.

This perception minimizes girls’ powers and abilities and ultimately limits their career prospects. This problem is common in many schools worldwide and not just in the US. To change the narrative, it is important to instill power, courage, and confidence in these girls at a young age. They need to know just how capable and talented they are, and receive the support they need to dream big, own their intelligence, and harness their full potential. 

Cathi Rodgveller, the Founder and CEO of IGNITE Worldwide, is Andrea Heuston’s guest in this episode of the Lead Like A Woman Show where she talks about community and providing educational opportunities for girls and non-binary youth. Cathi discusses what STEM education means, explains what drove her to start IGNITE Worldwide, and talks about how she helps empower girls and achieve gender equity in STEM.

Lei Wang

Lei Wang is an executive coach, speaker, and mountain climber. As the first Asian woman to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, Lei has been a sought-after international motivational speaker since 2010. She has inspired people around the world to dream big and achieve a fulfilling life that is truly exciting. As a coach, Lei helps business leaders accelerate their career to exciting new heights with ease and grace, lead their organizations to make bigger impacts, and connect deeper with the communities they serve.

In 2004, Lei, who grew up as a Beijing city girl with no athletic training, set out to climb Mt. Everest. She was on a promising career track in finance with an MBA from Wharton. But she was excited about proving that an ordinary person could climb Everest. That excitement empowered her discovery, and she found that excitement is the driving force that motivates and empowers every one of us — and it’s the secret to innovation, peak performance, and extraordinary achievement. Today, as a coach, speaker, author, and adventurer, she travels the world to ascend new summits and empower individuals and organizations to dream big, take a leap of faith, and tap into the power of excitement to realize their potential and move mountains.
