Where are they now? Anne Marie Arko

Anne Marie is starting law school at University of Ottawa this September. She fulfilled her personal dream, working in legal and political affairs at the United Nations Environment Programme while living abroad for half a year in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Since the Forum I have boldly taken on many new experiences in the professional sphere of politics, policy, and law as I transitioned into the workforce.”

Anne Marie was actively involved and help shaped Canada’s international agenda. She worked with Canada's International Climate Change Negotiation team and supported Canada's delegation abroad at the intergovernmental climate negotiations for the Paris Agreement. Anne Marie reflected on the realities of women around the world from her international experience.

“I'm excited by the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I'm also looking forward to reconnecting with Equal Voice while I'm living in the capital region of our amazing country!”
