Proud to be a Woman Leader in Tech & Innovation for Humanitarian Needs
*
Technology like art is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.

I believe in the power of innovation to connect companies and organizations with equal opportunity for all. It’s why I work with a talented team to help companies and organizations leverage technology, data, and communications.  We are made up of leaders and specialists in the information and communications technology sphere as well as developers of digital media.

I’m the Chief Innovation Officer for the World Humanitarian Forum and a member of the WHO Innovation team, consulting on innovation throughout the Covid crisis.  Prior to these roles, I was with the United Nations Secretariat where I Lead for the UN Reboot Accelerator for youth crowdsourcing and on the core team that created the global network of UN Technology Innovation Labs (UNTIL).

Passionate about women’s influence and economic empowerment in the world, I’m a co-founder of COPXX and an Honorary Professor at the Wise Center for Economic Justice at Glasgow Caledonia University.  Additionally, as the President of The Singer Foundation, our focus is on supporting environmentally sustainable needs of women and youth globally.

Gratefully, I’m the mother of 4 children and grandmother of 4 and was honored to be named the National Mother of America in 2010.
