S1 Ep.3 Women are changing the way we’re changing the world: The journey to influence

In celebration of women’s month in South Africa the third episode of the ‘Just for a Change powered by the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship’ focuses on the journey to influence that the women featured on this episode are on. What is influence and how do we engage with the world around us? What are some of the lessons that the women in our lives have taught us and why is it important to see yourself as influential?

Guest host and Bertha scholar, Linda Daniels chats to the inspirational Dr Tracey Naledi, a medical doctor, public health physician, and one of the Deputy Deans in the Faculty of Health Sciences at UCT. Tracey is a 2018-19 Desmond & Leah Tutu Foundation and Discovery Health Foundation PhD Candidate, to find out more about her journey to being an influential voice in the healthcare sector in South African and further afield. From the first doctor in her community to her own father, mother and mother-in-law, the influences in Tracey’s life have varied immensely and have ultimately shaped who she is today and how she sees influence.
