Humanising From Silicon Valley To Australia | Episode 2

Humanising From Silicon Valley To Australia | Episode 2

              

Empathy, play, and the future. We speak with Julie Trell, Head of muru-D, Human API (connector of people, programs, and ecosystems), and SheEO Country Lead - Australia.

SheEO was launched in Canada in 2015. The model brings together 500 women Activators who will contribute $1,100 each. This money is pooled together and loaned out at zero percent interest to five women-led ventures selected by the Activators. The loans are paid back in five years and loaned out again, creating a perpetual fund for women-led businesses. 

In this episode we unpack:

  • Who Julie is as a human being and her career history from working across education, corporate, consulting, and now funding women-led businesses
  • What is SheEO and why investing in women-led businesses is critical to creating a more human future
  • What gets Julie excited about the future and equally what has her disturbed
  • What humanising the future of work means to her, and how she is skilling herself to thrive in a word of tech
