Chiara Pace, Head Individual, Digital and Public Giving, UN Women
Chiara Pace is a women’s rights advocate and a lifelong feminist with 20+ years of experience. She is the Head of Individual Digital and Public Giving at UN Women, the United Nations agency dedicated to gender equality and women’s empowerment. In that role, she leads and oversees the work of UN Women National Committees worldwide, which raise funds from the private sector, promote women’s rights and secure visibility for women threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.
Chiara started her career in the media sector with SkyTV. Her passion for gender equality and a determination to help create a gender equal world led to post-graduate studies in human rights, international cooperation and humanitarian aid, and different roles in Peru and Senegal with two Non-Governmental Organizations, managing programs on maternal public health and women economic empowerment.
She then served the United Nations (UNV, UNDP, UNCDF and UN Women) in various leadership positions, leading multi-stakeholder and multi-year public-private campaigns, overseeing external relation, communications and advocacy; as well as developing and expanding innovative partnerships with public and private sector.
Chiara was awarded an MSc in International Development and Cooperation from the University of Pavia, and a BA summa cum laude in Marketing and Communications from the University of Rome. She is fluent in English, French, Spanish and Italian. She is on the Advisory Board of Own The Room and has been a presenter and panelist in various events and lectures on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Chiara is an avid runner, a passionate cook, and the proud mom of a 15-month boy.
