Meet The Host

Laurie McGraw

Welcome to Inspiring Women

I am your host, Laurie McGraw.  Professionally, I have established my career in leadership positions at both high growth commercial companies and powerful non-profits, and always at the intersection of healthcare, technology, and innovation.  My board service spans public (NASDAQ), private, and non-profit organizations.  I am fortunate to be able to advise on strategy and work with many talented CEOs and entrepreneurs.

I have always been driven at work – dreaming big, working hard, making a difference.  I have great pride in my work when I have the opportunity to enact change in healthcare and make an impact.

One of my passions over the years has been to advance women into leadership.   As a leader, mentor, coach or friend, to support, challenge or even inspire.  I firmly believe that women need to hear the stories, the advice, the guidance from other women as we all navigate our career paths and try to make a positive impact in the world.  And so now, this podcast.

Who is this podcast for?

It is for you.  You, if you are just getting started in your career adventures; you, if you are at the pinnacle of your career; you, if you are somewhere in between.  Oh, and this podcast is also for me.  It is a wonderful opportunity to speak with many remarkable and inspiring women!

When not working, hopefully, I am outdoors, traveling, or otherwise relaxing in Boulder, Colorado or Big Sky, Montana with my husband, friends, or grown children and their expanding families.

I hope you enjoy this podcast.

Professional.  Polished.  Accomplished. Thoughtful. Made It. Ready to Make It.
