"the sky is too big for two birds to clash"

Terembe currently leads knowledge management and learning efforts for CARE International's future focused organisational development. This involves supporting the CI Confederation to become more agile, diverse and relevant for the future and supporting global governance and leadership teams to understand changes underway and make informed decisions about future directions. Terembe is also an avid content creator, using her YouTube channel, to share her perspectives on everything from the workplace, hyper-connectivity in a time of social media to Nairobi’s burgeoning art scene. She is proud to have created The Arena Kenya, a community for campus students to engage, learn from each other and build career skills to propel themselves.

Terembe believes in the connectedness and intersections of disciplines and has particular interests in art, history, literature, politics, pop culture, social justice and urban African cities.
 
 Join us as we have a conversation about Arundhati Roy's latest article for the Financial Times, why Terembe changed her name (10:45), knowing your roots and the passing of her grandparents (21:21), feminism through her lens (32:56), dealing with desirability and beauty standards and centering oneself (38.28), The Arena (49.53) and whether the current NGO/ International Development model is sustainable (1:02:20).
