Introducing the speaker
Really excited to welcome Ann to the IC-Hub, as she is not only a brilliant MEL expert, but she's also an excellent independent consultant, IC-Hub member, and trains people on MEL.
Ann is a proud ‘island girl’ who hails from the country of the world’s fastest sprinters- Jamaica. She went on to live and study in South Korea and then adopted The Netherlands as her second home for nearly 10 years.
She is a seasoned MEL expert with nearly two decades of professional experience and is the holder of multiple advanced degrees from the University of the West Indies and Ewha Womans University.
Ann has been involved in consultancies funded and implemented by international organisations such as the United Nations and the European Commission. Her sectorial interests are Gender Equality, Poverty Reduction, Migration, Social Protection, Child Protection, Human Rights and Justice Reform.
Apart from her professional activities, she is a philanthropist, a member of the Rotary Club and other voluntary organisations.
We look forward to seeing you there! IC-Hubbers will also receive the full replay and additional resources from Ann.
