Alessandro Girola

I am a development and international project officer with over ten years of professional experience. My interests include poverty reduction, women’s economic empowerment, governance, financial inclusion, sustainability and rural development. After receiving degrees in Economics from Bocconi University and a master’s degree in International Finance, Economics and Policy from Columbia University, I gained experience working in the financial sector, academia, and international organizations, including the African Development Bank and UN Women. I worked in Africa, Europe, North America and South-East Asia. I am currently a Project Management Specialist at the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations where I help social entrepreneurs to scale their impact more effectively through sustainable scaling pathways.
