Jobsharing And Beyond

Jan 15, 2021

I am very appreciative to introduce our guest for today, Lisbeth Odgaard Madsen. Lisbeth is the founder and CEO of Potential Company, focusing particularly on the talent pipeline consequences because of the mental rift between family and ambition for men and women. Potential Company expands the opportunities for gender diversity at all levels of the talent pipeline.

Lisbeth is the author of the book “Mother with Ambition” written in Danish. She has been advisor and speaker of various areas of diversity and talent retention.
