A Change-Maker's Toolkit
Published August 29, 2019
Do you want to be a change-maker? That's exactly what Kathryn Harrison is, now a startup founder and formerly the Director of Global Product Management at IBM Blockchain. She spoke to students at the fourth annual Global STEM Alliance Summit in July about her career and how she became a disruptor in order to help attendees understand what tools they need to become change-makers themselves.
Introduced to bitcoin while working in Istanbul on assignment for IBM and trying to pay her student loans across currencies, Harrison thought to herself, “How could this start to transform the world?” After moving back to the U.S., she joined a community of people working to use blockchain to change people's lives. Hear her fascinating and inspiring story in this video.
