Maddie's Candid Conversation with Geraldine D'Silva 

12-19-2022 01:27 PM

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 discussion and Q+A.
