Emmanuelle Herman


Emma Herman is the Senior Officer for Communications and Outreach at the international women’s fund Mama Cash. Since joining the organization in 2013 her projects have included three sold-out ‘artivism’ festivals, two online solidarity campaigns that became trending topics on Twitter, a media partnership with The Guardian, and, most recently, the Women’s March Amsterdam. Bringing the voices of women’s rights activists to a wider audience is a constant theme in her endeavors. Prior to joining Mama Cash, Emma worked for the Dutch and European civil service and for several non-profits. Emma is an active member of several professional networks related to human rights, development and social entrepreneurship, including Humanity In Action, CSR Chicks and P!oneers. Emma has lived and worked in New York, Paris, Brussels and Cotonou. She is now back in her hometown Amsterdam, where she lives with her partner and two daughters.
