Prior to joining BSR, Jenny worked at Mercy Corps for over a decade in both field management and advisory roles to better understand, prevent, and mitigate conflict. As the organization’s first Peace & Governance Director in Myanmar and later as the Director of the Peace & Conflict technical advisory team, she launched, built, and implemented programs that aimed to reduce violence, build the preconditions for peace and development, and address critical and emerging threats – from climate change and disruptive technology to poor governance and gender inequality. She has experience in context analysis, stakeholder engagement, mediation and negotiation, project design and implementation, and strategic planning. Jenny has lived and worked in countries including Myanmar, Indonesia, Nepal, Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Central African Republic, and Cameroon.

Speaking Sessions

I felt this conference was life changing. I am truly inspired and am plotting both career and personal changes to live up to the great lessons I learned. Both the sessions and the networking were vital.
