Growing up in India, @Geraldine D'Silva developed a deep understanding of equality and the human-animal bond. From an early age, she'd care for stray dogs in her neighborhood, feeding them and taking them to a local shelter for further care. Later, that compassion expanded using her degree in Sociology which took her to remote villages to study the caste system and women's empowerment, and then volunteering with those experiencing homelessness. An M.B.A. from the Edinburgh Business School gave her even greater skills, but as a foreigner both in Scotland and then in the U.S., finding meaningful work was a serious challenge. Join us for an inspiring look at her journey across the globe and learn how her unique approach to adversity helped change the lives of animals and the people who love them.
Maddie's Fund Executive Leadership Team member @Mary Ippoliti-Smith hosts the presentation. Afterwards, continue the conversation with Geraldine right here on Maddie's Pet Forum.

With work experience in three continents and over 10 years of operational leadership, Geraldine has a passion for building innovative community programs and strategic partnerships to bridge the gap between human and animal well-being, to increase access to care. She led a small non-profit through a merger & acquisition with one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the US, and over 8 years strategically helped integrate the services throughout the 140-year-old animal shelter, enabling it to pivot to the new community-centered model that is now unfolding. Brought up in India, she did her B.A. in Sociology which took her to remote villages to study the caste system and women's empowerment. She has an M.B.A. from the Edinburgh Business School in Scotland and a background in research consultancy, advertising and branding.
