Robin Gorna is an Aids activist and feminist who has led global and local campaigns and organisations, including SheDecides, the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health at the WHO, and the International AIDS Society. In 2003, she set up the UK Department for International Development’s global Aids Team.
In this episode, Robin talks about her career in activism and how it was fueled by personal loss, whether and how we can impact the work of large global organisations, and what she has learned about leadership along the way.
Robin and I work together on the Women’s Network of St John’s College Oxford. Over the years, I have learned a lot from her – about charisma, taking people along, and facilitating decision-making. If you are curious about careers with impact and leadership, this episode is for you!
