Debbie Sterling

{Born 1983}


As one of the few female engineering grads in her class, Debbie set out to transform the demographics of a field that’s still 86 percent male. Using a clever viral video to fuel a successful crowdfunding campaign, she launched GoldieBlox, an educational toy company that pairs colorful building sets with stories starring adventurous kid inventors. Besides taking on the traditional toy-store “pink aisle,” Debbie’s making sure that our girls develop the confidence and skills to literally “build the future.”
