U.S. Consulate’s Jethro Gardiner on impactmania’s Award Winning Program

Jethro Gardiner traveled a week with impactmania's founder, Paksy Plackis-Cheng, and international participants of the Women of Impact network. Jethro shares his experience, the learning he will bring to his work at the U.S. Consulate and how to represent a diverse voice at the conference table. 

Featuring You in 2020!

We thank the U.S. Consulate in New Zealand for supporting impactmania's Women of Impact program. Paksy interviewed 12+ impact makers in New Zealand. A number of women from the global network flew out to New Zealand for an intense week of personal and professional work and development.

Nowadays there are a lot of people using words like co-design. I remember when I did my first co-design master class. It was a three-day workshop, and I sort of slipped away. I had to find another Pacific person saying, “Isn’t this just what we do normally, or?” “That's what it is?” I was like, okay! I'm doing okay.

It is about the work, and it is about the people. Making documentaries is an ill-advised career really, so your heart better be in it!  [Laughs.] It is the lowest budget; it takes ages. Most of the time you are just fishing. You know you are there trying to catch the best shot. You have to really appreciate that privilege.
