For seven years I have collaborated with the United Nations and the various civil society non governmental organizations that contribute their research and insights to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Here are my roles over the years and how they have evolved:
- OneMama.org (Current Permanent Representative to UN).
- Women’s Intercultural Network (NGO delegate and Board of Directors): For five years I served as a member of the Board of Directors where I drove media strategy and our NGO narrative about the policy initiatives we advocated. I worked on the Cities for CEDAW initiative, encouraging municipalities to adopt the CEDAW ordnance currently in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. CEDAW is a human rights treaty for women currently ratified by all of five United Nations member states.
- Women News Network (WNN): I reported on global women’s issues and the annual Commission on the Status of Women sessions.
