In Episode 41 of the Power Your Platform Podcast, I interview Ingrid Gayle, the founder of Girl Boss Chess, a global collective of ambitious women on a mission to empower girls through the game of chess.
Girl Boss Chess is the world’s only online chess collective for girls and it tackles the gender gap in chess head-on. The result is that it inspires girls -- and women of all ages -- to discover and develop their inherent strengths.
In this episode, Ingrid and I talk about playful storytelling, confidence-building and what it takes to create meaningful change in the world.
So if you’re a fan of the Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit”, then pour yourself a beverage and pull up a chair. Because this interview is for you.
