    078 Youth Perspectives 1 - Food Security

    078 Youth Perspectives 1 - Food Security

    Belinda Ng, is a client, friend and inspiration to me. she shares her thoughts on employment at major corporations, and on food security in this episode. "The question that comes up for me is how much of this is really embedded within what they're doing? And it's true to their core purpose? Or is it really just, you know, controversial greenwashing. And that they're just kind of saying this, because it's kind of part of a cool, trendy thing that all companies are doing now. And they can have a lot of money to market themselves in this way. But I think actually, I'm more hopeful than I am cautious. There's the cautious element is more that it's making sure I still have that critical mindset that my education has really shaped me to have to not just take things at face value, but really try and explore deeper ask critical questions"

    Abortion ESG

    Abortion ESG

    Abortion ESG is a term I've coined to describe the implications of abortion on the environment, the societies that form us, and the governance tha's meant to protects us. A friend introduced me to the term Cognitive Polyphasia where different knowledge and rationales live side by side in one person. And this is definitely something we are all experiencing when attempting to tackle complex issues in order to make deliberate choices. If we consider that all lives matter, the dissonance becomes even louder. Because we take so much life in the broad sense of bandwidth, in order that we may preserve our own. This is precisely the decision many women make of the people I know personally around the world who have gone through the ordeal of terminating a pregnancy. I don't recall meeting a single one who is proud of it, talks openly about it, or does not sometimes wonder what could have been.

In this episode I explore the legacy of Milton Friedman with some needed food for thought on profit vs purpose.
