People Equity recently contributed to helping Jo-Anne Bawden embark on a journey to India (alongside 19 other female leaders), supporting the amazing work of The Hunger Project Australia.
On the back of Jo's trip, we thought there was more that could be done to promote not just the impactful role that she has played in the global fight against world hunger, but also show how this incredible charity is empowering women from some of the world’s most marginalised communities.
Launching a six-part video series, People Equity Director, Nicola Crocco, sits down with Jo to reflect on her journey to India. Each video follows a different ‘Women in Leadership’ theme; why women play such an important role in the fight against world hunger, the leadership attributes that shine through, and advice for women who want to create change in their own communities, to name a few.
Enjoy the videos! We know you’ll be just as inspired as we were.
The Hunger Project’s goal is to end world hunger by 2030. Their approach is different – they see people living in hunger as the solution, not the problem. By shifting the mindsets of women and men, they’re able to transform them into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, The Hunger Project empowers people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.
In the first of a six-part series, Nicola talks to Jo about the aim of The Hunger Project and why women play such an important role in achieving its purpose of ending world hunger by 2030.
Part 2 sees Jo talk about the power of marginalised women living in hunger having the courage to manage the issues in their own back yards, first.
The third in a series of short conversations with Jo, Nicola finds out about the results that a collective of women can achieve when combined with a powerful sense of what is right.
Here, Jo talks about the leadership attributes that shine through in women when they are united in achieving sustainable change and have each other’s backs.
In part 5, Jo reflects on how her life has changed since coming home from India.
Wrapping up the series, Jo shares some advice for women who want to create change in their own lives and communities.
