ACT serves millions of students, job seekers, employers, and more around the world with learning resources, assessments, and credentials designed to help them succeed beginning in elementary school and throughout their career.
The two chat about how Janet grew from writing test questions with ACT to serving as CEO, why leaders are only as successful as the teams around them, and how her frustration helped her realize what truly motivated her. Janet also shares her thoughts on how becoming CEO during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic impacted her and the organization.
