Stephanie Ziebell, Coordination Officer for the Office of the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General for the United Nations in Haiti will present From Macalester to the United Nations: Peace-Building and Community Based Projects.

Stephanie Ziebell graduated from Macalester with a B.A. in French and International Studies. After pursuing a Master's degree in Global Affairs, Ziebell continued to build on the diplomatic skills she acquired in her positions as Academic Dean at the San Domenico School in California and as Program Officer of the International Diplomacy Council in San Francisco to coordinate a Civil Society Peace Coalition in liaison with UNIFEM in conflict affected districts in Uganda and support a civil society inter-agency coalition of women's organizations in Haiti.

As program analyst of UNIFEM's Governance, Peace, and Security section, she coordinated a six country peace building community-led program for women victims of violence before joining the United Nations's Community violence reduction program in Haiti and becoming the Coordination Officer for the Office of the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General.

Stephanie will share her experience in peace building, women's community led projects, and her work with youth in Haiti and several African countries as well as her experience with specific organizations such as the United Nations.

This presentation will be in English followed by a question and answer session.
