About | Dechen Dolker

Dechen Dolker


I am deeply motivated by the environmental and social impacts of economic activities; largely because I come from a part of the world where eco-systems are precariously tipping under the weight of such impacts.

After various marketing and business-operations stints at consumer companies in India, I am currently pursing a Masters in Environment & Sustainability from Monash University. I am interested in leveraging wide-scale business transformations which to me, are the need of the hour. Importantly, how do we do this while ensuring the well-being of millions?

Mentoring at Altiorem is a part of what I believe is critical to answering such questions, i.e. building accessible knowledge for business leaders who want to lead the transformation.
