Introducing Marlene...

Hi! I’m Marlene,

I’m a social entrepreneur, Communications and MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability & Learning) specialist, and art photographer, videographer and content creator who helps organisations and individuals tell their stories in a creative way. Leadership remains such a dynamic aspect in the ever-changing world and with a personal passion for different subjects revolving around women in leadership, I am always open to learning and hope you are too!

Join Emily and I, as we look at feminist leadership around the world, let’s share and learn more about what’s working for other leaders and how we can use the same skills to create inclusive spaces for our teams to drive change. Personally, Afrikala Art was born in the middle of the pandemic after losing my job and was trying to find ways to move forward from what felt like rock bottom. The idea is to offer a creative communication service, alongside championing mental health support for artists and creatives in Kenya- who went through hell during the pandemic. Many were forced to sell their assets at a throwaway price just to put food on the table. Depression trickled in and some never made it. Professionally, as a MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability & Learning) and Communications specialist, I have helped different organisations, especially small charities and grassroots organisations increase their organisational capacity to deliver their programs and develop their PR and communications. Afrikala Arts, is a social enterprise operating in Kenya, East Africa, consisting of a group of young outside-the-box thinkers out to revitalise the levels of expression, especially among the youth and creatives. It involves young individuals who form a holistic content creation team that actively champions Mental Health and Creativity. Afrikala also has a podcast called Mental Talk recently launched to share information and demystify Mental Health issues while encouraging best practices. Stay tuned for great content coming your way. Cheers to Leading Like Feminists!
