KAREN CRAGGS:
DELIVERING ON GLOBAL EQUALITY

Hi I’m KAREN. I’m an activist and global citizen with an insatiable passion for delivering on Global Equality.
 

WHY? Global Equality:

..facilitates inclusive and productive environments in all spheres
.. empowers marginalized groups to realize their full potential       
..is a pre-requisite to addressing the biggest challenges of our time


We are living in exciting times...now, more than ever before, there is global recognition and buy-in for the need to promote Gender Equality and Inclusion. Yet, many actors still don’t know HOW to implement and deliver on Global Equality effectively.

THIS IS WHERE I ADD VALUE.

I enable my partners strengthen their current efforts while moving towards transformative policies, programs and initiatives. HOW? I provide the knowledge, skills and tools needed to deliver on Global Equality.

This is my gift - my calling.

I can’t wait to share it with you!
