Samantha Ettus focuses on human potential. In this provocative talk, she argues that going beyond pink and blue is essential to helping all children get from where they are today to what they could become tomorrow. At a time when princess, pink and pretty are marketed more heavily than ever before, gender stereotypes have become even more prevalent. Ettus passionately makes the case that it is only by removing gender bias from the home, the classroom, the toy stores and the media, that all children will have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
