TALKS WITH INNOVATORS, CREATIVES & ENTERPRISERS: Options For Women with Jacinta Gulasekharam of DignityNZ
Dignity co-founder Jacinta had a good yarn with Rebecca Stewart (and show producer David Binstead) on the latest episode #80 of ‘Talks with innovators, creatives & enterprisers | twice’.
On what they chatted about and why you should give it a listen, over to David:
We loved having Jacinta on the show to chat about her journey of making a positive impact through her work at DignityNZ. Here’s some of my takeouts from the episode:
- Collaboration - working powerfully together with fellow social enterprise founders to scale impact, with for example their Xmas period pack.
- Research - an evidence-based approach to ensuring their initial market validation is genuinely impacting the right people.
- Finding community in the unlikeliest of places - her best job (so far) being security detail at Red Badge.
- Old white men have a place, and value - acknowledging that some of the pale and male brigade aren’t necessarily stale. Her school principal and local MP as two stand-outs of the genre who are actively supporting future generations.
- Education’s ok, but the real work starts when applied practically - Jacinta’s belief that each has its place, yet her current full-time role was secured on the back of skills honed with Dignity, and the Vic Uni Bootcamp.
