IMPACT | S2 | Ep 6 | Barriers, opportunities for female-led business innovation

December 13, 2021

Who gets to be an entrepreneur?

According to the World Bank, just one in three businesses globally is owned by a woman. And in South Asia, the figure is as low as 18 per cent. 

CQUniversity School of Business and Law academic Dr Vanita Yadav is a lecturer in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and she’s exploring the barriers women face to launching start-ups, and how they overcome them. 

On this episode, Dr Yadav explains the cultural and social expectations that hold women back from taking the leap into entrepreneurship.

But the right support and education can boost female-led businesses into the big time.

IMPACT is CQUniversity's research podcast, exploring ground-breaking research projects, and their real world impacts. For more information visit cqu.edu.au/research.

IMPACT | S2 | Ep 5 | Tackling social issues to improve health for diverse communities

December 6, 2021

When you protect vulnerable communities, you protect the whole community.

That firm belief prompted CQUniversity Public Health academic Dr William Mude to investigate how COVID-19 was impacting different racial communities differently. 

His global study found that in western countries, the prevalence of coronavirus cases was 156 per cent higher among black people than in the white community, and 154 per cent higher among Hispanic people, and 104 per cent higher for other non-white racial groups. 

Dr Mude tells IMPACT that governments must address social disparities to improve these health gaps, and argues the value-for-money approach to public health spending is failing minority communities.  

You can read Dr Mude's study here.
