The Glenbard Parent Series, Navigating Healthy Families, will present “Persistence, Passion, Grit: Finding Your Unique Talent” with Jodi Norgaard at noon Jan. 15 at the Community Consolidated School District 93 Administration Center, 230 Covington Drive, Bloomingdale.
Norgaard is founder of Dream Big Toy Co. and creator of the Go! Go! Sports Girls line. She is regularly featured on national media to discuss the need to close the gaps in the workforce by providing children with diverse role models and eliminating the stereotypes that hold them back.
In this presentation, Norgaard will share her entrepreneurial journey in which she achieved success while challenging the status quo. Norgaard will discuss her journey to launch a socially responsible product, the hard battles she fought and how her persistence, determination, passion and resilience – qualities all parents can nurture in their children – changed an industry.
