Justine Greenland Duke interview: Keep Dancing, Keep Learning!

August 26, 2021

Justine Greenland Duke joins us on this episode! Justine is Head of Knowledge Management at Mastercard Foundation in Toronto, where she helps people, teams and organizations make sense of apparent complexity through the thoughtful use of technology. 

For over 15 years, Justine has focused her efforts on philanthropic organizations. Previously she pursued careers in dance performance and choreography.

We discuss the value of knowledge management inside philanthropic foundations, how working backwards from a strategy can make knowledge more useful, and how honing both technical skills and creative skills can help you recognize patterns in both your professional and personal life.

Justine tells us how the skills learned in gymnastics and dance, such as discipline, communication and simplifying ideas, have helped her in her professional life. Finally, we explore some tips for managing professional transitions, including taking a break, serendipitous relationships, talking out loud, and journaling.
