Leading work on equality, Brexit and values in politics.

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

Velmi ambiciozna a sikovna mlada dama. so zmyslom pre spravodlivost a rodovu rovnost. S nekonecnou energiou ci v neustalom vzdelavani, v pracovnom aj politickom zivote.

Since I have met Lucia, I have been deeply impressed by her drive for excellence: excellence in what she is doing and how and excellence of European public service, of which we are both part. Lucia does not stop seeking new information, learning and thinking how to apply the gained insights in the pursuit of excellence. This makes her not only a highly valuable public servant but also a role model inspiring others.
