For the past several years Joan was the HERproject Country Representative for Kenya at BSR–Business for Social Responsibility and was responsible for representing HERproject in Kenya. This involved identifying new partners, building relationships, providing technical support to implementing partners, and sharing learnings locally and in global fora.
