Working with partners throughout the UN system to co-create a new normal, a new paradigm, based on compassion and justice for all.
As a United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) representative, I’ve had the privilege of bringing my passions and skills to ongoing work in and around the United Nations since 2007. Along with consultation and facilitation, my UN presentations have included the UN High Level Political Forum, UN Commission on the Status of Women, UN NGO Conference, and UN Commission on Social Development.
I started this work in 1998 as the lead drafts person on The People’s Communication Charter, for the Hague, on behalf of non-profit organization, Cultural Environment Movement. I read documentation from many world governments on the effect of media on culture and on policies and practices to address it. At the same time, I was taking deep dives into what leadership meant, how culture impacts everything else, and into how we could create a more compassionate and just world. In 2007, I felt called to support leadership and cultural transformation at the United Nations, made a few phone calls, and the fun began!
In 2020, I especially enjoyed being on the drafting committee of
The UN75 People’s Declaration and Plan for Global Action
