Presented by Eve Jolly and Rachel Glasier from the Ākina Foundation.

Eve has experience in social enterprise, human rights and law. She is interested in how community-led engagement with government can drive positive social change.
Eve has spent a number of years in Eastern Europe undertaking advocacy for government reform across socio-economic sectors including in anti-trafficking, disability education and orphanage care. She was part of a team that built a regional coalition of non-profits to monitor human rights in nine countries.
More recently, Eve lived in New York where she advised and mentored a cohort of change-makers from around the world to strengthen their professional capability, and ran a social enterprise to address food insecurity among communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Eve has core skills in project management, strategy development, programme design and capacity building. In 2014 she obtained an MA in Human Rights from Columbia University, plus holds a LLB and BA (politics).
