    Making Childcare Affordable for Everyone—with Alessandra Desiderio - EP51

    Making Childcare Affordable for Everyone—with Alessandra Desiderio - EP51

    For people who live near the poverty line, a one dollar increase in hourly wage means losing access to public assistance. But this increase in income does not make up for the loss of benefits, and many families get caught in a vicious cycle: If you can’t pay for childcare, you can’t work. And if you don’t work, you can’t feed your family. So, what can we do to make childcare affordable for every parent?
    Alessandra Desiderio is the Founder and CEO of the CREW Childcare Rewards, an app designed to revolutionize the way we pay for childcare and create a world where all parents can afford to care for their kids. Alessandra also serves as the Development Officer at Colorado Lending Services and Managing Principal at Fiore3 Consulting. She has 15 years of experience in development leadership, personally designing, launching and selling startups in the tech, service and advocacy space.
    On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Alessandra joins Emerald to share her mission to make childcare accessible for all, explaining how her own experience as a single mom and survivor of domestic violence informs her work. She weighs in on the challenges of being a non-tech founder, explaining how she leverages rapid prototyping and a willingness to fail fast in the creative process. Listen in for Alessandra’s insight on making difficult decisions and learn how you can be a part of CREW’s work to make childcare affordable for everyone.

Perfect for Women Who Are Up to Something Bigger than Themselves!

I just listened to my first two episodes of Wickedly Smart Women (Ashley Rainsbarger-SP 43 and Dr. Sally Lamont-EP 46) and I'm hooked! I love the way this podcast explores the wide variety of ways in which women are making a difference in the world, highlighting the many challenges we all share and including actionable nuggets that can help us all in our journeys. I also love that Emerald includes a lot of women that are not celebrities or household names, demonstrating that "ordinary" women are showing extraordinary leadership. These women are both inspiring and make my own dreams seem more achievable. Thank you Emerald!
