Today’s guest is on a mission to provide institutional financial support to the world’s most gender impactful strategies and entities, thereby enabling them to deliver value for the world’s women and girls.
She is the Founder and CEO of Women of the World Endowment, a global endowment focused on investing in and through women as drivers of solutions to today’s pressing challenges. She has made strategic large-scale contributions to the growth of the gender lens investing market, and is widely recognized for driving innovation and building sustainable global investment programs, with a focus on both profit and impact. She actively drives forward a capital system more inclusive of women and girls, and one that is racially diverse.
Please join me in welcoming Patience Marime-Ball.
In this episode we discuss:
- her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership embodies 3 things; living your full potential (self-work), influencing others (multiply effect), and building an ecosystem (sharing with others).”
- her internal conflict of being a gregarious child and not following her cultural path growing up in Zimbabwe.
- how her grandfather saw as much potential in his daughters as he did in his sons and how he nurtured their paths and encouraged them all to live to their full potential with purpose.
- her thoughts behind collaboration and how to essentially ‘find your people’ and share resources.
- how being a voracious reader opened her mind to bigger ideas in the world.
- the impact her mother’s experiences had on her.
- her experience at law school and how one summer changed her trajectory during her higher education.
- the creation of Women of the World Endowment.
- how being intentionally uncomfortable is necessary to build an ecosystem and how that has helped her have an impact in the spaces she is a part of.
- that leadership evolves from connecting your mind with your heart.
- how she nurtures and sustains her network of people by being intentional and trying to make deep connections.
