In the midst of everything else going on, we’ve made an exciting internal change. IEEW is pleased to introduce Anna Rohwer as our new Director of Global Operations!
Anna comes to us with 10 years of international development experience, with a focus on global non-profit operations, programs, and communications. Anna’s work has spanned continents and sectors, with professional experience in girls’ empowerment, global health, safe water and refugees. Having spent the early years of her life in Nigeria, Anna knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue a globally-focused career. Through her extensive travels, she has become a seasoned cross-cultural communicator and collaborator with a desire to foster greater understanding and compassion across borders.
Anna holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Bachelor’s Degree in Economic Development from the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University and a Master’s Degree in Globalization and Development from the University of Manchester. She is also a graduate of Salt and Light Leadership Training’s Young Leaders Program and Leadership Oklahoma City’s LOYAL Program.
Along with her passion for educating and empowering women around the world, Anna brings a wealth of knowledge to the organization. She is replacing Karel Ford, who recently transitioned from the organization to pursue other professional aspirations. Anna has already jumped in feet first and is working closely with me, along with the Board of Directors and International Advisory Council, to help strategize the future of the organization.
We are excited to have Anna on our team and look forward to the ways she will help us to expand our impact globally!
