Susan Rapley

Profile image of Susan Rapley I wear many different hats in my work which currently looks like a DIY research and teaching fellowship across varied disciplines. This of course is the most positive way to spin participation in work via the “gig” economy. The changing nature of work in the 21st Century (especially for people where access to work may be complex) is one of the many leadership challenges facing Aotearoa currently that has piqued my interest.

My unique contribution across communities is to invite people to think about different ways – of doing, thinking, perceiving and communicating.

Through Be. Leadership 2019, I’ve learned to embrace the serendipity of ideas and the creation of hope through small actions. While my journey has not always been easy, I’m proud to be doing something at this stage that my 8-year-old-self would be stoked with.
