About me

I am leading a highly committed UNICEF team to support Czech Government and partners in addressing the needs of refugee children and families fleeing the war in Ukraine. One of the new exciting initiatives is to engage private sector in providing pathways to employment and skills building for young Ukrainian women and men.

What does the word „opportunity“ mean to you?

Opportunity is a possibility that one can pursue to achieve something of value – education, employment, political representation, etc. The maturity of society is measured by how equal the opportunities are for all its members – women and men, young and old, people of all ethnic and religious backgrounds. How equal are the opportunities in our society?
