Tell us a little about yourself: I am an avid learner and passionate about contributing to social endeavours that have a positive impact on society! With a multifaceted background, I proudly highlight my interests and work undertaken in the last couple of years: human rights advocacy, international relations, and corporate social responsibility!
Why have you joined Impaakt as an analyst? Firstly, Impaakt offered me the opportunity to be trained and learn from experts in sustainable development! Once I got certified, I stayed as an active member of the Impaakt community because I understood my contributions were positive in reaching an important goal: making companies accountable! The more I contributed to Impaakt, the more I learned about sustainable development applied to multiple business areas, which has been highly enriching.
What have you learned in the past year? I broadened my knowledge about the importance of implementing an effective ex-ante human rights due-diligence scheme, the positive effects of sustainable finance at the banking sector, the large-scale impact unregulated agribusiness operating in the Amazon have in deforestation, a strategic methodology to analyse gender equality, and the importance of the product-end-of-life cycle! Among others.
