Phillippa Mary

Global Development Incubator - Nairobi, Kenya Lead Partnership and Employer Engagement

Phillippa is the Lead Partnership and Employer Engagement for the Global Opportunity Youth Network (GOYN). Phillippa is particularly passionate about creating employment for sustainable solutions to youth unemployment.

Prior to joining GDI, she helped design and operationalize programs like the Ajira Digital Program, where she led a countrywide team to implement a nationwide hybrid training program, coordinated strategic partnerships that created market linkage opportunities for youth absorption, and designed mentorship solutions that supported the youth pipeline towards technical upskilling. She hopes one day to become a thought leader in the digital learning and labor markets ecosystem to help solve the unemployment crisis at a regional and global level.
