INTRODUCTION TO EPISODE 40

Most people don’t think about the concept of gender stereotyping until they become an adult. However, gender discrimination starts as early as childhood - at the age of six, to be exact.

Ina Bhoopalam, the young Founder and Executive Director of Dream Equal, dug into the issue when just in high school. Having faced gender stereotyping as a student, she wanted to create a space where people, irrespective of their gender, could pursue anything they wanted to in life.

In this episode, Ina joins Mike to share her inspiring journey founding her non-profit organization, Dream Equal, its vision and mission, and about identifying and correcting discrimination among young people so that we can work on bettering the world together - as one.

EPISODE 40 SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS

What was your inspiration as a young minority social entrepreneur?

1:19

It circles back to my personal experiences growing up. While in school, I was in many activities which had more boys participating, and it was harder to be a girl competing in those. It caused conflict in groups, and I started to be ridiculed on social media. That’s when I started reading about gender stereotyping. I learned that gender-based discrimination develops at the age of six and that there weren’t any organizations working to spread information about the same for people that young. That idea led me to found Dream Equal. 

How would you advise young entrepreneurs wanting to start amid the disruptive changes in the world today?
