Gissou Nia


Changing the Story

In her role as human rights lawyer, Gissou Nia has a background of working with people’s stories of trauma and using them to support the work she did on international law. As Strategy Director for Purpose, one area she is focusing on is boosting civic engagement around refugees and migrants through culinary diplomacy. Listen to her description of how Refugees Welcome became an award winning dinner series (now in five countries!) and how we can help ourselves and other to move along the commitment curve.
