Bain: Social Impact in New Marketing Role
OnTheGo Sport’s new marketer Mollie Bain brings extensive experience and strong social values.
She says, “I work towards business development initiatives that meet social needs of communities and optimistically believe every organisation has the power to have a social impact.”
This strong sense of purpose purpose has led Bain from an educational resources private company in Sydney, to a hospital foundation in Toronto, then a women’s NGO in remote Vanuatu and back to her hometown Canberra with Brumbies Rugby and now OnTheGo Sports.
Bain completed an economic and social sciences degree at the University of Sydney where she majored in political economy and industrial relations and human resource processes, obviously important in helping to shape her views.
Her passion for women’s economic empowerment and her business skills led her to the remote island of Malekula in Vanuatu where, as women's rural business development officer with a goal of improving income earning opportunities and livelihoods, she helped set up a business to market and sell local handicraft products.
As marketing and programmes co-ordinator, Bain’s role at OnTheGo combines her passion for social impact and working toward outcomes for communities as well as using her skills in business innovation.
She says, “I was attracted to OnTheGo because of their greater mission of getting kids in remote communities into sport and because they support non-profit organisations to raise revenue through merchandise.”
As a highly active community volunteer, she is involved in community outreach, awareness and fundraising for numerous environmental and social causes.
