Work with Passion

20161115-florence-montmare-portrait-photographer-nyc-minna-horowitz-jaana-rehnstrom-office-womenslab-collaboration-highresMy passion is to facilitate capacity building that uses the lenses of design, strategy, research, and mapping, to help gender-focused projects,
media development initiatives, ICT4D organizations, as well as higher education institutions, to increase their social impact.

In Central European University, my expert role is in Consultancy for Digital Rights and Advocacy at the Center for Media, Data and Society.

I want to help others do what they do better through mapping and engaging stakeholders, innovation strategy, close community building, and training in creative and collaborative thinking.

I can also assist funders to understand the fields they wish to contribute to.

I create and teach innovative, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary courses at the undergraduate and graduate level on topics ranging from introductions to media and communication theories, to specialized courses on media reform and human rights.
