Jodi Bondi Norgaard is the founder of “Dream Big Toy Company” and the creator of the award-winning “Go! Go! Sports Girls” line. She is regularly featured on national media to discuss the need to close the gaps in our workforce by providing children with diverse role models and eliminating the stereotypes that hold them back. In 2016, Jodi was invited by The White House to participate in a conference on breaking down gender stereotypes in media and toys.

In this presentation Ms. Norgaard shares her entrepreneurial journey – in which she has achieved great success while challenging the status quo. Join us as Ms. Norgaard discusses her journey to launch a socially responsible product. Learn about the hard battles she fought, and how her persistence, determination, passion, and resilience – qualities all parents can nurture in their children — ultimately leading to a very successful and satisfying outcome, and changed an entire industry.
