#techgirl with communication and strategic management skills

Me: obsessed with gardening, interior design, innovation, running, and most importantly, my sweet, insightful, beautiful girl.

I work at the United Nations, evangelizing a culture of innovation and adoption of new ways of working across the Secretariat. This includes raising awareness of innovative practices, mindsets, and behaviours within and outside the UN; coordinating innovation challenges; building a global network of change agents; creating safe spaces for dialogue; and more.

Previously I led a team responsible for communicating ICT across the Secretariat, including the implementation of a global ICT strategy for the organization. This involved rolling out enterprise-class applications; tackling growing cybersecurity issues; leveraging social tools to increase information-sharing; and many other tech-related initiatives intended to modernize the UN, making it stronger and more effective.

eMAGINE.IT.ALL is a an idea, a concept, a dream about leveraging innovation and technology to empower people around the world to make a difference and improve their communities.

People everywhere are working on diverse social and economic development issues affecting our communities. Organizations, small or large, are made up of individuals dedicated to improving communities and helping others. Whether one person or millions are affected, these actions are necessary to improve our societies.

We can change the world. Together.

We can have well-being and be inclusive.

We need to think different.

Innovation and creativity are avenues to address our human need to reimagine, reinvent, and recreate our societies and communities.

Technology can enhance the ability of people and organizations to reach wider audiences through a range of digital channels:

    • raising awareness

    • sharing stories/impact communications

    • getting new ideas

    • establishing partnerships

    • connecting with others

    • attracting/mobilizing volunteers and advocates

    • increasing donations

    • informing the public and personnel

Grow your network. Empower yourself and your community.
