For more than a decade, Nadia Younes has been linking diversity and inclusion with innovation practices working with researchers, marketers, sales staff, and human resources professionals. In her current appointment as diversity and inclusion advisor for the International Monetary Fund (IMF), she is continuing to leverage her expertise in D&I and innovation to help diverse groups design solutions to address tough business challenges.
At the IMF, Nadia has used innovation labs and techniques to help inform the design of an integrated D&I and HR strategy as well as to help accelerate progress in embedding gender economic empowerment into the core work of the IMF, and therefore into the practices and policies of countries worldwide. She believes in the power of collective intelligence and designing for the greater good and welcomes any collaboration that add to both.
