Eva Schneider

I help organisations to align their social engagement with their core competencies and the needs of their stakeholders in an intelligent and sometimes surprising way.

Eva Schneider, Wider Sense GmbH

In her role as consultant at Wider Sense, Eva supports foundations, companies and individuals in the strategic development of their social engagement. Her main areas of expertise include participatory and European philanthropy, corporate citizenship and purpose.

Prior to joining Wider Sense, Eva worked at communication consultancies, focusing on crisis communication and public affairs. Furthermore, she gained experiences in the art world and the cultural sector in both Germany and South Africa.

Eva studied Comparative Literature and Political Science at Freie Universität of Berlin and Università degli Studi di Verona (Italy). In the interdisciplinary Master’s programme European Studies at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) and Aarhus Universitet (Denmark) she focused on the legal, cultural, economic and political facets of Europe. In her master’s thesis Eva investigated the relationship between the “chameleon” populism and ideologies of various European parties.

Why did you choose working for Wider Sense?

I am fascinated by our work as translators and mediators between different "worlds". With our projects we connect the non-profit sector with private companies or the public sector. Together with our clients, we work to meet social challenges in a holistic way and break down silo mentalities.

What is a random fact about you?

I love strolling along the streets and parks of Berlin.
