The BID Initiative team works across three countries in the United States, Tanzania and Zambia. This week, we learn more about Mandy Dube, Change Management Lead from the Lusaka, Zambia office.
What is your role? My role on BID is to ensure that the changes we are introducing in the facilities are fully adopted and integrated into the way the health care workers collect and use data in their day-to-day operations. I help to make change happen and stick by creating an enabling environment where health workers can develop and grow their skills and confidence in using data to make decisions.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a flight attendant. I thought I would enjoy flying all over the world and buying chocolate on all my travels!
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would like to learn how to drive a super large truck, like the ones on the mines.
What is one of your favorite quotes? “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” Mathew 5 vs 14 & 16.
Who is your hero? My husband Fainos. He has helped me to be a stronger person and to aspire to greatness in the things that I value the most.
What are your hobbies? My hobbies are reading, baking, and crocheting.
