Nathalie is passionate about education and the future of work. Without new pathways in education that provide foundational 21st century skills, meet students where they are (equity) and lead to clear employment outcomes, African countries will lag behind in terms of the future of work. Since June 2020, Nathalie is Chief Executive Officer at Kepler. Kepler is building a global model of accessible and excellent higher education. By innovating the university experience, Kepler graduates distinguished learners and cultivate leaders who transform their lives, their communities, and their countries. Over 90% of graduates are employed within 6 months of graduation.
Prior to Kepler, Nathalie was Managing Director at the Next Einstein Forum building Africa's community of scientists, curating the premier science and innovation conference and pushing for science driven industrialization through foresight and policy work.
Nathalie has also worked in the Canadian public service and international social media consulting before working to build the Government of Rwanda’s central communication unit as Coordinator (DG) in the Office of the Government Spokesperson.
