Function at IAWM: Board member of IAWM

Biography: As Executive Producer, Advocacy & Innovation, I lead digital storytelling campaigns at Global Fund for Women. Throughout my career as a museum exhibitions director, curator and content producer, I’ve sought out innovative platforms to share stories and educate audiences about critical issues of our time. My interests sit at the intersection of art, media and social justice, guided by a belief in the power of voice and creativity to open a window into understanding our world.

Museum: Global Fund for Women is one of the world’s leading foundations for gender equality, standing up for the human rights of women and girls. We use our powerful networks to find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women who are building social movements and challenging the status quo. By shining a spotlight on critical issues, we rally communities of advocates who take action and invest money to empower women. In 2014, Global Fund for Women merged with the International Museum of Women (IMOW). The merger brought together Global Fund for Women’s grant making and advocacy expertise with IMOW’s skills in awareness raising, online campaigns, and digital storytelling.

Why am I working at IAWM? I believe in the unique role of women’s museums to amplify the voices and contributions of women past and present as well as their visions for the future. Media, art, and storytelling have the power to engage audiences in a more personal way, to create a connection, raise awareness, educate, fuel dialogue, establish the need for change, and spark action that can lead to transformation. By working together as a global network and combining our influence, we have greater strength and ability to raise awareness of and support for critical issues facing women and girls worldwide.
