Growing up in Belgium, Josephine Gross says she was always interested in education and healing. As she was finishing her undergraduate work in humanities, a visit to California ended up completely changing her life. She pursued doctoral studies at Stanford University focusing on the symbol of the hermaphrodite. Today she applies her education to her work as cofounder of Networking Times, where her broader philosophical mission is "to explore and teach business practices based on our awareness of the interconnectedness of all life."
