Guest: Cristal Glangchai, PhD, Founder and CEO, VentureLab, Author, “Venture Girls: Raising Girls to Be Tomorrow's Leaders” Women hold only a quarter of jobs in science, technology, engineering, or math (or STEM) fields, according to the US Department of Commerce. There have been all sorts of initiatives across the country to boost that number, but Cristal Glangchai says we haven’t gotten to the root of the problem. She says the key is teaching young girls entrepreneurship skills, so she founded the non-profit “VentureLab” to do just that. She’s got a new book out, “Venture Girls: Raising Girls to Be Tomorrow’s Leaders.” Check it out here.
