Episode Info:

Kate Grant is the CEO of The Fistula Foundation.

An obstetric fistula, the kind that occurs in many developing countries, is a hole between a woman’s vagina and bladder, and it is caused by many days of obstructed labor. It leaves women incontinent and often abandoned and ostracized by their communities.

As the CEO of the Fistula Foundation, Kate is tasked with telling the stories of this stigmatized and unspoken condition in order to raise money to fund surgeries for affected women. And she has done so valiantly, quintupling the foundation’s revenue since 2005 and earning Nonprofit Marketer of the Year awards along the way.

In this conversation Kate and I talk about how she tells the stories of obstetric fistulas in a way that audiences will engage with, the importance of having heart and humility when speaking to others about their trauma, and what advice she has for both storytellers and entrepreneurs when it comes to bringing issues you care most about to light.
