E6S11 From U.N. Executive to Social Impact Entrepreneur with Florance Navarro

Summary & Key Takeways

How many ways are there to becoming a social impact entrepreneur?

For Florence Navarro, building a career in leading global institutions including at the United Nations and the World Bank eventually led her to founding her own social enterprise.

Florence is a leading innovator in global entrepreneurship and organizational development. With a rich background working for the United Nations, the World Bank Group, and various incubators, she founded Kichocheo to revolutionize recruiting and retention for mission-driven organizations. 

Here are the top 3 key takeaways from this podcast:

1. Career Progression: Florence emphasizes the importance of gaining experience and acquiring key skills early on in your career. She highlights the value of internships, project management, and implementation roles as stepping stones to leadership positions. It's all about focusing on what you want to learn and being open to unexpected opportunities.

2. Salary Negotiation: Florence sheds light on the complex topic of salary negotiation. While it's important to advocate for your worth, she stresses the need for a well-prepared, evidence-based argument rather than simply demanding a higher salary. Skills, qualifications, and the demonstrated value you bring to the role should form the basis of your negotiation strategy.

3. Creating Opportunities: Our guest encourages young professionals to create their own opportunities and be proactive in pursuing their passions. She shares personal anecdotes about volunteering, exploring new fields, and the benefits of remote work assignments.
