Episode 24: Conversation - Caroline Kende-Robb on fighting for social justice & supporting women in leadership

April 24, 2020

Welcome to The Next Page, the podcast of the UN Geneva Library & Archives. Episode 24 brings a conversation on two subjects that are also interconnected: social justice and leadership, especially women in leadership.

We’re joined by Caroline Kende-Robb, who currently serves as a Senior Advisor at the African Center for Economic Transformation. Before that, she held a range of roles including as the Secretary General of CARE International, the Executive Director of the Africa Progress Panel, and roles at the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and in The Gambia in the field of community development.

Caroline has dedicated much of her life to fighting social injustice and to supporting women in leadership. In this conversation, she shares with UN Geneva Library & Archives Director Francesco Pisano her experiences and her knowledge about these ideas, especially as they relate to our changing world. You’ll also hear stories from her time working in these different organisations, as well as how she sees leadership, including women in leadership, as we continue to question, debate and explore the idea of leadership today and in the future.

Episode 23: Conversation - ICRC President Peter Maurer on multilateralism, the power of partnership, and working for impact.

April 9, 2020

Welcome to Episode 23 of The Next Page podcast. In this episode, UN Library & Archives Geneva Director Francesco Pisano speaks with Peter Maurer, the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

This conversation will take you on a deeper look into the ICRC, established more than a century ago. Peter Maurer shares about its identities that have developed over time, and gives insights into its connection with the United Nations; the role of young people in the work of the organisation; the value of new ways of thinking and mobilising resources to ensure work that has impact; and what multilateralism means for the ICRC in practice today and in the future. As this episode is recorded online, as we together respond to the pandemic of COVID-19, he also shares what the ICRC is doing and learning from this current situation.
