Why did you choose working for Wider Sense?
I am fascinated by our work as translators and mediators between worlds. With our projects, we connect the nonprofit sector with companies or the public sector. Together with our clients, we work to address societal challenges holistically and break down silo mentalities.
What is a random fact about you?
I love walking through the streets and parks of Berlin.
