Innovation UnderCover was joined by Rebecca Meldrum, Founder at Meldrum Consulting. Her service fosters innovation through sprint workshops on circularity and sustainability.

A 2018 report by McKinsey finds a direct correlation between profitability and diversity, and inclusion and diversity are seen as a source of competitive advantage and a key enabler of growth. However, companies are still struggling to use these characteristics for value-creation and growth.
This was a key topic that Renu and Michael discussed with Rebecca Meldrum, Founder of Meldrum Consulting, along with her journey from being an aerospace engineer to an Aviation startup founder.
 
Some of the topics we discussed:
  • Why she chose aerospace engineering
  • Her experience in having two children and working for a few companies before embarking on her startup
  • Building an ecosystem around aerospace
  • Diversity has to start at the beginning
  • Men vs. Women and differences in their promotion into stretch roles
Other titles we considered:
  1. We Were Trying To Be Changemakers
  2. Is It Too Good To Be True?
  3. I Want To Be In My Mindset
  4. We Walked Into The Room, And It Was 90% Women
  5. If They Can’t Conform In This Interview, How Do They Conform In My Organization?
This episode was produced by Isabelle Goh and Khrystyna Khmilovska.
