Jen Ching: Improving Health Care Access for LGBTQ+ Individuals Everywhere

Jen Ching: Improving Health Care Access for LGBTQ+ Individuals Everywhere
Jen: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Everyone deserves to be healthy and happy, no matter who they love or how they identify. But sometimes, people who are in the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer) community struggle and face issues in accessing health care that others do not. They may be afraid to go to the doctor because they are worried they will be judged, treated differently, and.just not receive good care. Because of this, they may avoid seeking help when they need it, which can lead to more issues over time. Sadly, LGBTQ+ people are more likely to experience mental health issues like depression and anxiety as well as lifelong illnesses like HIV/AIDS. At LVNDR, our mission is for every LGBTQ+ individual to be able to access the care they need to live full and happy lives.

Alex Bellotti: Empowering Young Leaders to Build a Sustainable Future for All
Alex: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! One Young World empowers and develops young leaders to build a fair, sustainable future for all.

It is a chance for the individuals responsible for shaping the future of our world to come together to confront the biggest challenges facing humanity. The Summit is the ultimate place to be inspired, share learnings, and connect. But the Summit is not only a life-changing four-day experience, it also is just the start of every attendee’s journey with us. Every leader who attends leaves the Summit as a One Young World Ambassador and a valued member of our global community.

Alexandra Copos de Prada: Helping Companies Better Invest in Their Employees
Alex: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! As CEO of a 1,500-staff hospitality company, I struggled to retain people with us for longer. We were bleeding over 500 employees a year which was costing us over one million euros per year. I initially faced low morale, and a difficulty to attract quality people, as well as develop our high potentials. I tested out many ideas to improve engagement, productivity, and retention, which resulted in halving our attrition rate and saving hundreds of thousands that we then invested back in delivering an exceptional employee experience. Moonstar was built out of my challenge of finding a far-reaching solution to help mid-sized companies invest in their employees to build a highly productive, connected, and happier workforce.
