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.
