About our founder, Kate Griggs.

Introducing Kate

British social entrepreneur, founder and CEO of charity Made By Dyslexia, Kate Griggs has been shifting the narrative on dyslexia and educating people on its strengths since 2004. Dyslexic herself and having been surrounded by an extraordinary ‘smorgasbord of Dyslexic Thinking’ her whole life, Griggs knows the superpower of dyslexia all too well.

She is a leading voice in global advocacy and is leading the charge to disrupt the world’s thinking around dyslexia, which is vital for the workplace of the future.

Her work to define Dyslexic Thinking skills has been central to Made By Dyslexia’s ground-breaking reports, produced with partners including EY and Manpower, which are transforming the way workplaces, schools, and society sees dyslexia.

Kate is the author of two Amazon #1 best-selling books published by Penguin Random House, a children’s book Xtraordinary People and her new book for adults, THIS is Dyslexia, which redefines and reshapes what it means to be dyslexic. It explores how it has shaped our past and how harnessing its powers and strengths is vital to our future.
