In this episode, Julia is joined by Alice Albright, the Chief Executive Officer of the Global Partnership for Education. The GPE is the largest global fund solely dedicated to transforming education in lower-income countries and works to put gender equality at the heart of national education systems.

Alice discusses how girls’ education is essential to advancing women’s empowerment globally, how Covid-19 has restricted opportunities for girls around the world, and how we can address this in order to build back better after the pandemic.

Alice also walks us through her career journey, sharing her experience of working on Wall Street in the 1980s and how she overcame misogyny to rise up the ranks despite the hyper-masculine work environment.
