UN Women Training Centre Presentation: Gender Trainers & COVID-19: What have we learned from the Pandemic?
I had the pleasure this year of being a panelist at the 17th Virtual Dialogue hosted by the UN Women Training Centre’s Community of Practice (CoP).
We explored the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender equality trainers and training for gender equality across the globe.
Find the report below, which summarizes the key findings of our dialogue – highlighting how gender equality trainers have navigated the pandemic, the challenges we have faced, the opportunities we have built on, and recommendations for the future of transformative training for gender equality in a post-pandemic world.
Thank you to our fabulous facilitator Lucy Ferguson and amazing co-panelists, Daniela Moreno Alarcón, PhD Nnamdi Eseme and Álvaro Campos Guadamuz. To access the recording see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRedikgDIPM&t=2136s

Drawing on a unique blend of skills & lived experience, raised in a Montreal-based Jewish family with a history of social entrepreneurship, I come to ALG through a non-linear path and bring a one-of-a-kind perspective. As a “recovering human rights lawyer” I bring together the pragmatic problem solver in me, guiding others to make things better, and the neurodivergent creative facilitator, educator and communicator, with a deep passion for human growth, connection and empowerment.
In my free time, you can find me fawning over Maya, the family dog, doing yoga or meditating and on walks, so many walks, in rain, shine or snow.
Most importantly I am called to help humans create more compassionate, safe and inclusive spaces and organizations where all women can thrive. This is what lights me up and makes me tick.
