Ethel Walker's Meera Viswanathan On The Value Of Single-Sex Learning

In a world of buzzing smartphones, endless meetings and persistent deadlines, how can we be more in-tune with ourselves and more creative in our endeavors?

This hour, we talk mindfulness and creativity in the 21st century. We hear from an Icelandic filmmaker and 2016 Yale Greenberg World fellow who resigned from a career at the United Nations to pursue the secret to intuition and creativity.

We also sit down with The Ethel Walker School’s new head of school -- former Brown University professor Meera Viswanathan. Together, we discuss the value of private, all-girls education and learn about Dr. Viswanathan’s vision for her students.


  • Dr. Meera Viswanathan - Head of School at The Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, Connecticut 
  • Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir - Icelandic consultant, filmmaker, entrepreneur, writer, 2016 Yale Greenberg World Fellow, and co-director and author of the documentary "InnSaei"
