Leading work on adolescent girl programming and advocacy
Adolescent Girl Program Training Consultant (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 1, 2012
Pros: working with great minds in different countries and on different interconnected themes, with access to relevant data.
Cons: limited funding still on adolescent girl programs
The Population Council has thought leaders in the field of adolescent girls, gender, health and other themes touching on women's agency and wellbeing across the life span. Working there is a true learning and networking opportunity.

The bulk of my work there consisted of organizing and leading capacity building workshops for program staff in organizations – more... in Francophone West Africa and in Haiti.

The most interesting part of the work is the opportunity to create, brainstorm and adapt new programs to the specific context and realities on the ground, while always taking girls' needs into account.

What is most difficult is getting implementing partners to match activities to girls' needs. There usually is a disconnect there. – less
