Senior Vice President, Social Impact, International Markets at Mastercard
““I am a conduit for those wanting to understand corporate philanthropy and its evolution and trajectory; those in social impact looking to build a peer network; those who enjoy innovative and non traditional partnerships; those who love dark beers and stouts.”
I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT
There are so many issues that drive me to do the work I do – but just to name a few: girls’ and women’s economic empowerment, financial inclusion, entrepreneurship, fintech for good, sexual and reproductive health, sports for development… I could go on. If you are making me choose, though, my main driver is absolutely girls’ empowerment – in all its complex facets.
YOU CAN HELP ME BY
I am passionate about partnerships that go beyond the typical philanthropic partnerships where you have a donor and a grantee. I like creative partnerships where all players bring all their assets to the table, and it’s less transactional and more impactful. So if anyone wants to explore a partnership – particularly on the girls’ agenda – come talk to me!
