As the largest foundation in Canada and the fifth largest in the world, the Mastercard Foundation seeks a world where everyone has the opportunity to learn and prosper. With this ambitious mission, it may not come as a surprise to find an equally aspirational leader. In this episode, Douglas Nelson is joined by CEO and President, Reeta Roy, to tell us about the important work the Mastercard Foundation is doing in areas of education and finances. Reeta shares the development of the foundation and the strategies they employ in communities from Sub-Saharan Africa to across Canada. At the heart of it, she highlights the importance of co-creation, of understanding that you don’t have all the answers, and, therefore, you must learn to listen. She also discusses her journey as a leader, the people that helped her along the way, and the lessons she learned on what excellence looks like in the social profit sector. Full of great wisdom on leadership and serving, this conversation is not something you would want to miss!
