Global Goals Ambassador at United Nations Association of the United States of America
Caroline Rakus-Wojciechowski is a graduate of the Harvard College Class of 2018. She has extensive, applied experience in SDG implementation and development work. As she joins LPCE team, Caroline will also continue to serve as the Co-CEO of Taita, a sustainable development consulting startup in Ecuador. Caroline also serves as the Chief Partnership and Innovation Officer for the Youth Sustainability Development Conference 2021: Pan-African Edition in order to provide pan-African youth with the socio-entrepreneurial skillsets needed to pursue higher education and to obtain decent work. She is also a UNA-USA Global Goals Ambassador for SDG11 and has served as a World Bank Group Youth Delegate for Smarter Cities for a Resilient Future for her transportation initiative.
Caroline is currently part of two fellowship cohorts: the UN Experiential Fellowship and the Global Policy, Diplomacy, and Sustainability Fellowship. She is expanding her influence and understanding of international relations, public administration, and global policy, while applying her passions in educational equity and the creation of decent work, in developing sustainable solutions and building human capacity, and in establishing partnerships for the Goals to implement impactful programs by learning to navigate the UN sphere. Caroline uses a project-based, holistic teaching style to demonstrate the intersectionality of the goals learned from her own involvement in several fields of sustainability, not limited to climate action, building sustainable cities and communities, responsible resource production and consumption, reducing hunger and poverty, and reducing gender, racial, and disability disparities.
When not serving as a global citizen and servant leader, she can be found practicing krav maga, cooking a cultural cuisine, or learning a new skill.
