Our 2020 Keynote Speaker: Claudia Romo Edelman
This year, we have the honor of hosting Ms. Claudia Romo Edelman, founder of the New York-based non-profit We Are All Human Foundation and formerly of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Claudia is dedicated to advancing the agenda of diversity, inclusion, and equity through developing and hosting events on a global, regional, and national scale, along with conducting and publishing research.
A Mexican-Swiss Diplomat, Claudia is also a Founder and Co-Host of ‘Global GoalsCast,’ a podcast distributed by CBS News Digital, which highlights global progress through the stories of champions making a difference.
Through an extraordinary background with global organizations, including the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, Claudia has, for 25 years, worked on humanitarian causes with agencies such as UNICEF, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. She is an advocate for social causes, a journalist, and a diplomat with a track record on shaping public opinion, building the narrative on perception change, creating global campaigns and mobilization efforts, and leading partnership activation. We are excited to welcome her to Minnesota and hear about her efforts to galvanize our Hispanic community! RSVP online.
