This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Celeste Mergens. The two return to this season’s nonprofit series, and talk about Days for Girls, what they are doing to shatter the stigma and shame around menstrual equity, and how they are offering dignity, health, and opportunity around the globe.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What started the idea of Days for Girls International

  • What they are doing to shatter the stigma of shame around menstrual equity, and how they are changing this global need

  • Why it was so important to Celeste at the beginning to offer an open source invitation for any and all to help change lives

  • Why and how they started with a scalable platform, clear roles, action steps, and the ability to embrace and empower a community of growth

  • Where Celeste sees Days for Girls going in the next ten years

  • How they are offering dignity, health, opportunity, and equity to girls around the globe

  • What you’ll find in her new book, The Power of Days
