Teach girls while they are young; any career choice is possible.
September 25, 2019
Hosted by Colleen Biggs
Join us this week as we dive into how it’s possible to teach girls, while they are just 4 months old, to try their best, not necessarily be the best! Our guests believe that girls can have any career they desire. This is exactly what The Little Gym International, Inc. does and Heather Anderson leads the charge and lives by example as the VP of Operations at the corporate headquarters. Malory Atkinson was fueled by this through life and eventually decided to co-found and form Shear Structural, Georgia's only 100% women-owned structural engineering firms.
