Leading work on equality, Brexit and values in politics.
European CommissionSocial Media: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucia-klestincova/
Lucia is recognised for her non-negotiable commitment to public service, courage to experiment with an unorthodox career path in the EU institutions, and a profound stand for feminine leadership. She is humble yet respected as a role model, mentor and policy expert, both at the European level and in her home country Slovakia. Lucia's biggest gift is in her ability to onboard others while 'leading from the future' towards Europe led by values-driven change-makers. She has founded multiple women networks and projects aiming to transform how the European administration functions, communicates and works with its talent. At the European Commission, she works as a policy advisor coordinating new (gender) equality policies but also preparations for Brexit. This experience 'nudged' her to run in 2019 European Parliament elections. She continues bridging the 'EU bubble' with general public via her podcast Lights on Europe - shedding light on Europe's leaders. Lucia Klestincova

Uz pocas studia na strednej skole bola velmi aktivna ci uz v stredioskolskom parlamente ale v lige proti rakovine. Na vysokej skole stala v prvej linii, nelutovala svoj cas ani peniaze nato, aby sa stale vzdelavala. I ked mala na Slovensku velmi dobru pracovnu poziciu neustale mala vyssie ambicie ako ovplyvnit zivot nasej krajiny a zivot v Europe. Velmi usilovna, empaticka,s velkym zmyslom pre spravodlivost.
