Lead of Knowledge, Ashoka Globalizer
Olga is a diplomat by training and committed the last decade of her career to supporting systems-changing social entrepreneurs at Ashoka. She has worked in various capacities in Ashoka’s national, regional and global programmes – from the search for social entrepreneurs who become elected as Ashoka Fellows, launching the country office and co-developing a national support ecosystem for social entrepreneurs in the Czech Republic, to being a thought partner on systems change for 40+ Ashoka Fellows across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. While she continues to support fellows, she co-leads the Globalizer’s Systems Unit where she develops knowledge products for social entrepreneurs and the broader ecosystem.
Parallel to Ashoka, she provides systems thought partnership to foundations and social entrepreneurs from diverse countries and volunteers her time to advance waste management systems and environmental education.
