Carole Wainana Showcases her Support for Malaria Elimination at the J.C. Flowers & Co. Annual Meeting
Carole Wainaina, the United Nation’s Assistant Secretary-General for Human Resources Management, has long-supported the work of the Isdell:Flowers Cross Border Malaria Initiative. Last week, J.C. Flowers & Co. was honored to host Wainaina as a keynote speaker during its Annual Meeting.
Born in Kenya, Wainaina holds a broad array of leadership experience, and brings a unique perspective to the fight against malaria. She has more than two decades of national and international, corporate and non-profit leadership experience, having served as the Chief Human Resources Officer and member of the Executive Committee at Royal Phillips in the Netherlands from 2011 to 2014.
Wainaina started out her career at the Director of the Kenya Wildlife Service, and moved her way through a variety of leadership positions within Coca-Cola, including President of the Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, and later, Group Human Resources Director for Europe.
As we are reminded this World Malaria Day, ending malaria for good requires a broad network of supporters. We are thankful for strong leaders and advocates like Carole Wainaina.
