In this very interesting conversation with host Ashutosh Garg, Claire shares her professional journey and the many roles she has played to be where she is. An engineer by profession, Claire spent more than three years in the startup field and co-founded a tech company called Layer. After this, she announced her withdrawal from the company and embarked on a journey to revolutionize education. Claire believes that education has always been her calling. Claire talks about the changes she planned to bring about in the education system and how people from the field reacted to her decisions. An individual without an educational background, it was very bold of Claire to venture into this field with big plans in mind! Her focus is on enabling educational leaders to become change-makers and fix the education system. Claire also talks about how the coronavirus plays the role of a catalyst in her plan.
