What Carol does with G@W
As Knowledge Strategist, Carol works to catalyze and coordinate knowledge building and knowledge outreach across G@W's change interventions and network.
Year she joined...
She has been an advocate of G@W's approach for many years and the opportunity to be involved in this game-changing work to challenge gender inequalities was not to be missed.
Where else she has worked
Inspired by her doctoral research on the efforts of inter-war transnational women's organizations to have women's rights addressed by international organizations, Carol became a Research Associate at the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development where she wrote on mainstreaming gender into bi- and multilateral organizations and their programs. After working with the UN, she continued promoting gender equality and women's rights issues as staff member or consultant, mainly with UK-based INGOs. She worked as Gender Policy Analyst at ActionAid UK and in 2007 joined Oxfam Canada, first as Learning and Accountability Specialist, then as Manager, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Unit, and most recently as Advisor to the Knowledge Hub on VAWG/GBV.
